The Dubochet Center for Imaging (DCI) is a joint initiative of the EPFL, the University of Lausanne and the University of Geneva. The DCI is currently composed of two units, the CryoGEnic facility (DCI Geneva) is located in the Science II building of the University of Geneva and the DCI Lausanne (https://www.dci-lausanne.org/) is located at the border between the EPFL and the University of Lausanne..
These two units form the DCI, a service platform for cryo-electron microscopy. The DCI operates several high-end TEM and cryo-EM instruments to study biological molecules, viruses, bacteria, micro-crystals, small organelles, or sections of biological cells or tissues. The DCI has the expertise and is equipped to perform the entire structural analysis pipeline, covering the preparation of the samples, image and tomography data collection with electron microscopes, micro-electron diffraction (micro-ED), computer image processing, and atomic model building.
The Bioimaging Center - CryoGEnic is providing help at different levels:
Dr. Yashar Sadian, Dr. Christoph Bauer, Dr Celine Besnard
