BIO-603(SH) / 1 credit

Teacher: Stahlberg Henning Paul-Julius

Language: English

Remark: 3-day Block course, every year in January. To register, contact EDMS


Every year


Cryo-electron microscopy structural analysis of proteins. The course aims at demonstrating the workflow from sample purification to determining the atomic structure of a soluble or membrane protein.


Students will be introduced to the principles of protein purification, biophysical characterization of the state of the proteins, and structure determination by cryo-EM. The latter will involve sample preparation for negative stain EM and cryo-EM, image recording in an advanced and automated electron microscope, image processing, and 3D structure reconstruction.


Please note that you are not allowed to inscribe in your own group!

Note that 3 practical courses are mandatory for all EDMS students and that they have the priority; each course has between 2 to 4 possible slots.

Therefore, please do not register by yourself to this course, this will be done by the EDMS program administrator!
