Special issue of Journal of Microscopy celebrating the 2017 Nobel Prize in Chemistry
Journal of Microscopy published a special issue celebrating the 2017 Nobel Prize in Chemistry laureates
Professor Jacques Dubochet, Dr Joachim Frank and Dr Richard Henderson and their work on the Development of Cryo-Electron Microscopy for imaging of biomolecules in solution. The free virtual issue features 29 papers published in the Journal of Microscopy by these Nobel laureates during their careers, including a paper published in 2011 by Professor Dubochet entitled “Cryo-EM—the first thirty years.” This special issue is available for freeon the Wiley Online Library until the end of the year.

What to do when your grant is rejected
Losing out on a grant hurts, but don’t lose heart — average success rates are around 20% among large funders, so grant rejection is common. Discover how to bounce back, find alternative funding and boost your chances of success next time.
Revolutionary cryo-EM is taking over structural biology
The number of protein structures being determined by cryo-electron microscopy is growing at an explosive rate. A report published by Nature on February 10, 2020 says that a revolutionary technique for determining the 3D shape of biomacromolecules is booming. Last week, a database that collects protein and other molecular structures determined by cryo-electron microscopy, or cryo-EM, acquired its 10,000th entry.
