News & Events

After a short administrative update, each meeting will include two Project updates (~ 45 mins / project) or 3 Core updates (25 mins / core). Each presentation is coordinated by the designated Project, Core, or CDP lead. The lead will consult with the PIs on their project/core and designate who will present and how the presentations will be constituted, preferably including a mix of senior and junior level presenters each month.

Teleconference meetings are held the 3rd Friday of each month at 10:00-11:30 AM PT.

The 2022 HIVE Winter Virtual Face-to-Face Meeting & Training Retreat

January 19-21, 2022

Information for attendees:

  1. Recording F2F presentations. We plan to record the F2F presentations, as in past meetings, and deposit the recording in a secure Dropbox to be accessed only by HIVE Center investigators. If you would not like to have your presentation recorded let us know before the F2F Meeting by email and at the time of your presentation. As in all F2F meetings, all information presented is confidential and not to be disclosed by attendees outside of the meeting.
  2. Training Retreat. Thanks to all that signed up for Rob’s Cryo-ET Training Retreat/Workshop! Rob will provide an overview of Cryo-ET principles, particle reconstruction, discuss some examples of his studies, and provide resource/background papers and resource links for the workshop (Rob, thanks!). See Rob’s attached agenda for the upcoming workshop (see below). A separate email will be sent to all providing the .zip packet containing the resource/background papers (also available at the link below).
  3. Breakout sessions on Day 2. The intent for the B-HIVE Project and Core breakout sessions on Day 2 will be to discuss and plan transitions to B-HIVE Projects and Cores goals, as well as discuss collaborations. The Project and Cores Leads will direct the sessions and appoint a person(s) as a session “scribe”, as we have in past F2F Winter Breakout Meetings, to take notes. The plan is to then share the broad topics discussed during the sessions during the Open Discussion on Day 2 at the end of the day. Art Olson has established a Google docs link for the session scribes to capture discussions during the sessions, which should allow us to share the notes during the Open Session and after the meeting. Art will provide information on Google doc use and the Google link at the F2F meeting.
  4. Zoom videoconferencing. We are fine-tuning the zoom format for videoconferencing, and we will provide a Zoom link in an email before the meeting.
