Electron cryo-microscopy is honored!

Oct. 9, 2017

The Sweden Nobel Prize in Chemistry 2017 was awarded to Switzerland's Jacques Dubochet, the German-born American Joachim Frank and Britain's Richard Henderson for developing electronic cryo-microscopy, a revolutionary molecular observation method coupled with 3D reconstruction. This technique allows not only to study biological samples without altering their properties, as it is the case with dyes, but also to produce high-resolution three-dimensional structures of biomolecules which represents a revolution in the field of structural biology.

 

FRISBI open access to national and international scientific, academic and industrial scientific communities to cryo-microscopy devices of high technology: Polara and Titan Krios, see our platforms catalogue http://frisbi.eu/platforms-catalogue/
