Today a 120B model called “Galactica” is open-sourced by @paperswithcode. It’s capable of writing math notations, citations, code, chemical formula, DNA, etc. Here’s why I think Galactica is a huge milestone in open foundation models, scientific automation, and responsible AI: 🧵

So after a couple of months fighting preferential orientations I managed to get a decent distribution 👇 for the mammalian small ribosomal subunit (40S) in isolation BUT...the damn factor I was looking for is not there!
Ummm... something funky happening in the amorphous carbo surface... will keep you posted!
BTW, I am using the compound described here:

for chemical modification of amorphous carbon so I don't have to use glow/plasma. Works quite well!

Thanks to @BenjaminHimes I think I am here?
Can you guys see me?
Trying to learn how this work!


This server is a home for those practicing or interested in cryo-Electron Microscopy, Tomographers welcome : ) Non-cryoEM tweets are welcome, but we encourage "content wrappers" for such toots.
