  • Electron Microscopy Data Processing Portal

    17 November 2022

    Electron Microscopy Data Processing Portal https://dresa.org.au/events/electron-microscopy-data-processing-portal The Electron Microscopy Data Processing Portal helps researchers process large datasets generated by CryoEM instruments. In recent years the number of electron microscopy (EM) instruments, especially in cryogenic electron microscopy (CryoEM), has increased in Australia and internationally. With more EM instruments now in use, scientists are producing more large datasets that need to be processed and analysed. This has created a bottleneck, with research delayed as scientists need more resources to work with the deluge of data they have created. At the launch of this newly deployed national service, Jay van Schyndel (Monash University) shared with attendees first-hand technical details about this tool. Participants also got to hear from Dr Farrah Blades (Institute for Molecular Bioscience, UQ) and her perspective as a current user of the EM Data Processing Portal. 2022-11-17 14:00:00 UTC 2022-11-17 15:00:00 UTC ACCS Melbourne, Australia Melbourne Australia Monash Universitythe University of QueenslandUniversity of Sydney Sara Motamen (s.motamen@anif.org.au) [] [] webinar open_to_all EducationCommunityCharacterisation trainingtraining materialdatadata processingElectron MicroscopyMicroscopyCryoEMLiberTEM microscopeportalCryoSPARC

  • ACCS Q&A session: Optimisation and automation of microscopy workflows for near-real-time data assessment and visualisation

    22 June 2023

    ACCS Q&A session: Optimisation and automation of microscopy workflows for near-real-time data assessment and visualisation https://dresa.org.au/events/accs-q-a-session-optimisation-and-automation-of-microscopy-workflows-for-near-real-time-data-assessment-and-visualisation Over the last few years, technological progress and optimisation of workflows at the Cryogenic Electron Microscopy at the University of Wollongong have enabled instrument scientists and researchers to assess the quality of cryoEM datasets in minutes rather than days. Much of this near-real-time data revolution has been made possible by automating and optimising a range of tasks involved in the early steps of data capture from microscopes. In this presentation, Joshua Silver will explain how existing workflows were reassessed in order to enable the near-real-time assessment and visualisation of cryoEM data. In particular, he will highlight the challenges that needed to be overcome. Finally, Josh will show how the lessons learnt in optimising and automating cryoEM workflows can be applied to other instruments and workflows from data capture through to transfer, processing and visualisation. This work was undertaken as part of the Australian Characterisation Commons at Scale (ACCS) project, under Work Package 4: “Big-data electron and correlative microscopy from instrument to publication”. Note: This event will consist of a 15–20 min presentation by Josh followed by a 40 min discussion/Q&A. 2023-06-22 14:00:00 UTC 2023-06-22 15:00:00 UTC ACCS Brisbane, Australia Brisbane Australia The Australian Characterisation Commons at Scale (ACCS) Dr Sara Motamen, ACCS Training and Community Engagement Manager (s.motamen@anif.org.au) [] [] [] open_to_all EducationcommunityCharacterisationtrainingtraining materialdataData analysisdata processingoptimisationautomationWorkflowsElectron MicroscopyMicroscopyCryoEMLiberTEM microscopeportalCryoSPARC

  • Electron Microscopy Data Processing Portal

    17 November 2022

    Electron Microscopy Data Processing Portal https://dresa.org.au/events/electron-microscopy-data-processing-portal The Electron Microscopy Data Processing Portal helps researchers process large datasets generated by CryoEM instruments. In recent years the number of electron microscopy (EM) instruments, especially in cryogenic electron microscopy (CryoEM), has increased in Australia and internationally. With more EM instruments now in use, scientists are producing more large datasets that need to be processed and analysed. This has created a bottleneck, with research delayed as scientists need more resources to work with the deluge of data they have created. At the launch of this newly deployed national service, Jay van Schyndel (Monash University) shared with attendees first-hand technical details about this tool. Participants also got to hear from Dr Farrah Blades (Institute for Molecular Bioscience, UQ) and her perspective as a current user of the EM Data Processing Portal. 2022-11-17 14:00:00 UTC 2022-11-17 15:00:00 UTC ACCS Melbourne, Australia Melbourne Australia Monash Universitythe University of QueenslandUniversity of Sydney Sara Motamen (s.motamen@anif.org.au) [] [] webinar open_to_all EducationCommunityCharacterisation trainingtraining materialdatadata processingElectron MicroscopyMicroscopyCryoEMLiberTEM microscopeportalCryoSPARC

  • ACCS Q&A session: Optimisation and automation of microscopy workflows for near-real-time data assessment and visualisation

    22 June 2023

    ACCS Q&A session: Optimisation and automation of microscopy workflows for near-real-time data assessment and visualisation https://dresa.org.au/events/accs-q-a-session-optimisation-and-automation-of-microscopy-workflows-for-near-real-time-data-assessment-and-visualisation Over the last few years, technological progress and optimisation of workflows at the Cryogenic Electron Microscopy at the University of Wollongong have enabled instrument scientists and researchers to assess the quality of cryoEM datasets in minutes rather than days. Much of this near-real-time data revolution has been made possible by automating and optimising a range of tasks involved in the early steps of data capture from microscopes. In this presentation, Joshua Silver will explain how existing workflows were reassessed in order to enable the near-real-time assessment and visualisation of cryoEM data. In particular, he will highlight the challenges that needed to be overcome. Finally, Josh will show how the lessons learnt in optimising and automating cryoEM workflows can be applied to other instruments and workflows from data capture through to transfer, processing and visualisation. This work was undertaken as part of the Australian Characterisation Commons at Scale (ACCS) project, under Work Package 4: “Big-data electron and correlative microscopy from instrument to publication”. Note: This event will consist of a 15–20 min presentation by Josh followed by a 40 min discussion/Q&A. 2023-06-22 14:00:00 UTC 2023-06-22 15:00:00 UTC ACCS Brisbane, Australia Brisbane Australia The Australian Characterisation Commons at Scale (ACCS) Dr Sara Motamen, ACCS Training and Community Engagement Manager (s.motamen@anif.org.au) [] [] [] open_to_all EducationcommunityCharacterisationtrainingtraining materialdataData analysisdata processingoptimisationautomationWorkflowsElectron MicroscopyMicroscopyCryoEMLiberTEM microscopeportalCryoSPARC
