BIO 595R/BMS 517C - Transmission Electron Microscopy

Goals:  Develop a basic understanding of the principles of transmission electron microscopy (TEM) as applied to the study of molecules, thin crystals and tissues. Knowledge of these principles will form a foundation for gaining practical experience and training in TEM through courses such as BIO 595S (Microscopy of Macromolecules) and BIO 595T (Microscopy of Cells and Tissues) and in image processing through course BIO 595W (3D Reconstruction of Macromolecules). BIO 595S and BIO 595T (each a 2-credit course) begin during weeks 4 and 5 of the semester, and overlap with BIO595R. BIO595W (1-credit) is taught during the last 7-weeks of the semester.
