Electron Microscopy
#
Transmission electron microscopy
Electrons are transmitted through an ultra-thin specimen, interacting with it and forming an image onto an imaging device
➟ view microscopes & machines
#
Scanning electron microscopy
Images are produced by scanning the sample with a focused beam of electrons. They interact with atoms in the sample, producing various signals that contain information about the sample's surface topography

Scipion
Image processing framework for obtaining 3D models of macromolecular complexes using Electron Microscopy (3DEM).
➟ view software
#
EMAN
Greyscale scientific image processing suite with a primary focus on processing TEM data (single particle reconstructions (3-D volumetric models from 2-D cryo-EM images) at the highest possible resolution, single particle cryo-ET, and tools useful in many other subdisciplines such as helical reconstruction, 2-D crystallography and whole-cell tomography).
