Dynamo will be used for the subtomogram averaging part of the EMBO course on Image Processing for CryoEM data.


Data sets

In the directory XXX there are folders with real data sets. Data sets:

  • Tomogram 1 is called crop.rec. The data is a fraction of a tomogram. The full tomogram was used in Cryo-electron tomography reveals novel features of a viral RNA replication compartment. (Ertel et al.), and represents several FHV viruses docked in the outer membrane of a mitochondrion. Data can be downloaded here
  • Tomogram 2 is called t20s.mrc. The tomogram visualises purified T20S proteasome in solution. Data can be downloaded here
  • Tomogram 3 is called v17.rec. This single tomogram is part of the data set used for the paper An atomic model of HIV-1 capsid-SP1 reveals structures regulating assembly and maturation by Schur FK, Obr M, Hagen WJ, Wan W, Jakobi AJ, Kirkpatrick JM, Sachse C, Kräusslich HG and Briggs JA. (2016). Data can be downloaded here
