Latest Resolution Stories
Why is it so hard for people to keep the promises they make to themselves every New Year? Qigong master teacher Vicki Dello Joio weighs in on what you can do to make resolutions that Stick.
The structure of biomolecules is of great interest for medicine and biology because their shape often determines their function. The use of new tools called free-electron lasers (FELs) allows scientists to obtain high-resolution structural insight into macromolecules.
A new semi-automated tool called pathwalking makes it possible to generate a "first draft" model of a protein fold taken from near-atomic resolution images of between three and six angstroms (Å), said researchers at the National Center for Macromolecular Imaging in the department of biochemistry at Baylor College of Medicine.
A radical new way of making structures visible at the nano level has been developed at Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz (JGU).
UCLA researchers report in the April 30 edition of the journal Cell that they have imaged a virus structure at a resolution high enough to effectively "see" atoms, the first published instance of imaging biological complexes at such a resolution.
The National Center for Macromolecular Imaging at Baylor College of Medicine has received a five-year, $9.5 million award from the National Center for Research Resources, maintaining a record of more than 24 years of support to advance the development of research technology in the field of electron cryo-microscopy.
