An interview with Moara Lemos

Posted by , on 3 May 2022

Moara Lemos is currently a permanent researcher at Institut Pasteur in France, where she has helped establish cryo-correlative light and electron microscopy and cellular cryo-tomography for different biological systems. She began her career (BSc and MSc) at the Federal University of Juiz de For a, working on trypanosomes of wild animals. She later did her

How volumeEM (vEM) can help map neuronal circuits

Posted by , on 2 March 2022

by Nadine Randel, University of Cambridge, UK DOI:10.5281/zenodo.6320414 Challenge The nervous system processes sensory information and generates different behavioural outputs accordingly. Synaptic resolution wiring diagrams form a basis for our understanding of how the brain works. Such a connectome provides the synaptic connectivity between all neurons and allows to identify all potential neuronal pathways which

Raffa Carzaniga and Errin Johnson, Training Working Group What are the aims of your WG? The main aim of the vEM

Meet the people behind Volume EM community (part 1)

Posted by , on 21 December 2021

Volume Electron Microscopy or volume EM (vEM) is a relatively new term that brings together several recently developed imaging approaches that use scanning and transmission electron microscopy (SEM and TEM) to allow the interrogation of cell and tissue ultrastructure in 3D, at μm to mm volume scales and nm resolutions.​ In this blog series ‘volume

FocalPlane features... Eva Nogales

Posted by , on 21 July 2021

In case you missed ‘FocalPlane features…’ this month, here is the recording of the webinar given by Eva Nogales on Tuesday 6 July 2021. As non-crystallizable polymers, microtubules have been the target of cryo-electron microscopy (cryo-EM) studies since the technique was first established. Over the years, image processing strategies have been developed that take care
