Save the Date for Dean’s Workshop on Cryo-Electron Microscopy

Please mark your calendars for Thursday, October 26, when the Dean’s Workshop, “Krios and Cryo-Electron Microscopy at Yale,” will take place from 1 to 5 p.m., in The Anlyan Center Auditorium.

Three scientists were awarded the Nobel Prize in Chemistry this month for their development of this revolutionary new technology, that has helped further elucidate biological structures in atomic detail. Yale recently purchased a Titan Krios cryo-electron microscope, which greatly enhances our ability to examine the characteristics of biological specimens. This device also brings cryo-electron tomography (cryo-ET)—an advance that builds upon cryo-EM—to our campus. This workshop will describe the cryo-EM resources available to scientists at Yale, and highlight some of the exciting new scientific advances made by Yale investigators using cryo-EM and cryo-ET.

1. Transferring folders.

Note that when transferring folders,
‘publicize.sh talk/’
‘publicize.sh talk’
without the trailing ‘/’ mean different things to the program. Similar to rsync, the first one transfers the contents of talk while the latter transfers talk and its contents.

2. Files2

I’ve added a one minute delay for files2 to publish to allow Dropbox to sync most files. Depending on file sizes, this may or not be sufficient, in which case you may need to wait at most 15 minutes for the files to all publish.
