Proteins Take Shape with New Technology

The 2017 Nobel Prize in Chemistry went to three scientists for their development of a new technology called cryo-electron microscopy (cryo-EM). This technique freezes proteins, and bombards them with electrons, allowing researchers to observe the building blocks of human cells. In a recent podcast by Proto, Luke Chao, PhD, a researcher in the department of molecular […]
