Cryo-Electron Microscopy Is the Method of the Year 2015

Nature Methods has named Cryo-Electron Microscopy the method of the year 2015. This structural technique, which was always a step behind nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy and X-ray crystallography, is now capable of near-atomic resolution thanks to important technical advances. Most protein structures have traditionally been solved by X-ray crystallography, but some proteins are not crystallizable. The common […]
