Real-Time X-Ray Scattering Techniques Help Observe Key Step in Protein Crystal Nucleation

Real-Time X-Ray Scattering Techniques Help Observe Key Step in Protein Crystal Nucleation

A major hurdle in structural biology and pharmacology is growing crystals to determine the structure of the biomolecules and pharmaceuticals under study. Researchers at the University of Tübingen, working with colleagues from Oxford and Grenoble, have now observed a key step in the nucleation and growth of some protein crystals. [More]
MIT Researchers Develop Novel Approach for Nanoscale Resolution Microscopy of Large Biological Samples

MIT Researchers Develop Novel Approach for Nanoscale Resolution Microscopy of Large Biological Samples

Researchers from MIT have successfully discovered a technique to physically magnify tissue samples by implanting them in a polymer, which swells on addition with water to enable high-resolution images. Since the late 1500s when the first microscope was invented, scientists have been devising ways to study preserved tissues and cells in a better manner. [More]
