    • One-shot structure determination

      By sampling a two-dimensional diffraction pattern on a spherical detector, three-dimensional structure determination of single molecules should be possible from a single measurement.

    • Translation: Channeling order

      A new method for isolating stalled ribosome–nascent chain (RNC) complexes from Escherichia coli and analyzing the folded states of these ribosome-bound proteins by multidimensional NMR spectroscopy.

  • technical highlights

    • Spot protein-protein interactions… fast

      Nanowire transistors act as high-throughput biosensors for detecting protein interactions.

    • NMR has its wiki way

      A wiki containing all the procedures and experimental set-ups used by the Northeast Structural Genomics Consortium is ideal for training new spectrometrists.
