Team Cryo ices Mass Spectrometry hopes in JBC Methods Madness tourney

6 Apr 2020

In its inaugural Methods Madness tournament, the Journal of Biological Chemistry pitted influential research techniques against one another in a three-week competition for methods glory, and at 12:01 p.m. EST on March 31 cryo­–EM/ET gave structural biologists around the world something to cheer about, beating mass spectrometry 51% to 49% ​ a margin thinner than shaved ice. 

Sixteen prominent methods, eight legends and eight rising stars, spanning the scope of biological chemistry were matched up, and you, the people who do the work, decided with your votes which would be crowned the tournament champion. In addition, our Methods Madness bracket challenge ended in a tie between two worthy contenders.
