Tiny Crystals Could Revolutionize Structural Biology Studies
For structural biologists, the first step in determining a protein's precise molecular structure is often the hardest: coaxing the protein to grow into the orderly, three-dimensional crystals that are the starting material for most structural studies. For particularly difficult cases, it can take years to generate usable crystals – and sometimes the protein never crystallizes despite intense effort.
