Single-Particle Discussion Group begins
First Thursday of each month, 4-5 p.m., NB10.606
To address the needs of the nascent cryo-EM single-particle reconstruction community at UT Southwestern, we have organized a monthly group to discuss methods and strategies to tackle problems as they arise. This will be of most use to people that have already collected some cryo-EM data; however all are welcome to attend. The format will consist of very informal conversations about specific problems. People who have questions can prepare two or three slides to provide a brief introduction of the project background and the nature of the problem. (Images may include raw micrographs, 2D averages, or a slice of a 3D reconstruction.)
As with all informal lab meetings/discussion groups on campus, the material presented is considered confidential.

Volta Phase Plate (VPP) Data
Dany presents Volta Phase Plate (VPP) data at Cell Biology Faculty Works in Progress, showing contrast and resolution improvement compared to previous subtomogram averages: the “96nm ruler” (coiled-coil, arrow) is visible with just 200 particles averaged.
