In the frame of three European projects, the Instruct ESFRI project on Structural Biology, the Biostruct-X project and the COST Action MP1207, the Instruct Image Processing Center at CNB-CSIC is planning training schools on 3D Reconstruction in Electron Microscopy and Soft X-ray Microscopy for January 2014. The course will focus on image processing topics, introducing the basic principles behind the capacity to achieve quantitative 3D information from sets of images and providing ample time for practical work.

The course will run from the 13th to the 17th of January at the Residencia de Estudiantes CSIC, in Madrid, and will be structured in two training schools on electron and soft X-rays image processing, respectively. Students can register to the two courses or just to one of them. The first training school deals with the image processing of electron microscopy images of macromolecular specimens, and will make use, fundamentally, of the XMIPP software suite. The second training school will focus on the image processing needs of scientists starting to use the new soft X-rays microscopes at ALBA and HZB-BESSY II synchrotrons, and will focus mainly on IMOD and XMIPP packages.
