Cryo-electron microscopy achieves unprecedented resolution using new computational methods

Cryo-electron microscopy (cryo-EM) — which enables the visualization of viruses, proteins, and other biological structures at the molecular level — is a critical tool used to advance biochemical knowledge. Now researchers have extended cryo-EM’s impact further by developing a new computational algorithm instrumental in constructing a 3-D atomic-scale model of bacteriophage P22 for the first time.
