In structural biology, many biologically interesting structures have remained a mystery; often because they are too dynamic to be crystalized effectively. With the shift to single-particle cryo-electron microscopy (cryo-EM), some of these challenging structures are starting to reveal their secrets...

Structural biology is undergoing a seismic shift as single-particle cryo-electron microscopy (cryo-EM) is increasingly becoming the technique of choice for scientists who want to study DNA, proteins and other biological molecules at atomic resolution. Having just recently broken the 3 Å (angstrom...

For many years the lack of sub 3 Å (angstrom) high-resolution structures solved by single particle cryo-electron microscopy (cryo-EM) created speculation that 3 Å might be the fundamental resolution limit of the technique. Now, in two papers, scientists using the Gatan K2 Summit® direct detection...
