YCR Policies

The instruments in the Yale CryoEM Resource (YCR) are located at three sites: West Campus, Yale School of Medicine, and Science Hill. They represent a substantial investment and resource for the Yale research community. To ensure the availability of these resources to all interested investigators and to maintain their optimal performance with minimal downtime, the YCR Team and the YCR Advisory Committee have established the YCR-Policies and will periodically review and update the policies.

Acknowledgements and Rates

Substantial and ongoing funding is crucial for the YCR to offer high-end support to researchers with subsidized fees. To sustain this level of support, it is vital that the YCR and its funding receive acknowledgement in publications. Therefore, publications resulting from YCR usage are required to acknowledge the YCR and the grants. For instance: (1) “Cryo-EM data were collected at the Yale CryoEM Resource, funded in part by the NIH grant S10OD023603.” if the YSB Glacios was used; (2) “Cryo-EM data were collected at the Yale CryoEM Resource.” for the use of all instruments other than the YSB Glacios.

Please refer to YCR-Policies for the rates of instruments, services, and consumables within the Yale CryoEM Resource.
