Funding Opportunity Description: The purpose of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to assist qualified laboratories to develop technical expertise in high resolution cryo-electron microscopic (cryoEM) single particle analysis. The applicant and a collaborating established cryoEM laboratory will work together to solve structures of novel, tractable specimens by cryoEM. Applicant laboratories should have relevant technical expertise and previous experience in structural biology or related fields that will allow them to develop independent expertise in cryoEM. One or two years of support should train the parent laboratory in cryoEM basics to a moderate level of skill, provide hands-on experience with all aspects of cryoEM analysis, and result in a structure.
