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...

With the advance of EBSD systems and heating stages inside the SEM, phenomena such as phase transformations and recrystallization may now be observed in real-time with high spatial resolution. These processes can then be linked to the underlying microstructure, yielding a detailed insight into how...
