Bringing tomography to cell biology via the National Network of Cryo-ET Centers


In this webinar, we will highlight the significance of tomography for cell biology and provide an introduction to the National Network of Cyro-Electron Tomography Centers. The mission of this network is to deploy these capabilities in support of original research efforts and to train new users in cryo-tomography.

A journey from 2D to 3D of cells and tissues using electron microscopy


Modern electron microscope technology has made it possible to meet a broader range of imaging needs, from conventional 2D surface imaging to large, high-resolution 3D volume imaging of cells and tissues. Here we will discuss how Thermo Scientific scanning and transmission electron microscopes enable researchers to explore the architecture of the cellular world.
