Led by Professor Fred Sigworth at Yale University, Principles of CryoEM is an educational curriculum including video, software and an e-book that provides a rigorous treatment of the mathematical foundations of cryo-EM image processing and reconstruction. The goal of our instructional efforts is to ground students and researchers in the understanding of the principles and best-practice methods in the computational processing that leads to molecular structures.
