Electron cryomicroscopy of autophagy complexes

Electron microscope equipment at EMBL

EMBL hosts a vibrant structural and cellular electron microscopy (EM) community. We share a comprehensive EM facility with the research groups of Martin Beck, John Briggs, Yannick Schwab and Christoph Müller. Together, the EM groups cover a wide range of expertise in structural single-particle cryomicroscopy, electron tomography and cellular EM to discuss weekly in an EM-focussed seminar series.
