• Taking the initiative on single particle imaging

    X-ray crystallography is a technique that can be used by scientists to map the 3-dimensional physical space of proteins and other biological molecules to an atomic level of detail. Over the last four decades or so, this technique has been used to map over 100,000 protein structures that can be found in the publicly accessible Protein Data Bank, with more being added every day.

  • XFEL Biophysics Experimentalist Opening
