Cryo-EM atomic resolution studies now published in Nature

11 Nov 2020

As we have reported already on June 1, 2020, two studies reported in preliminary published manuscripts on bioRxives.org showed that single particle cryo-EM data can be now resolved to 1.20Å or 1.25Å resolution, respectively. The groups of Sjors H.W. Scheres (LMB-MRC, Cambridge) and Holger Stark (MPI Göttingen) had for the first time shown that atomic resolution is attainable by single particle cryo-EM. Now, in November 2020, both studies appeared back-to-back in Nature. For details look at Nakane, T. et al. Single-particle cryo-EM at atomic resolution. Nature, 20, doi:10.1038/s41586-020-2829-0 and Yip, K. M., Fischer, N., Paknia, E., Chari, A. & Stark, H. Atomic-resolution protein structure determination by cryo-EM. Nature, 17, doi:10.1038/s41586-020-2833-4.
