The BioXFEL Center is pleased to announce that our very own Dr. Abbas Ourmazd of the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee is an author on two joint papers that were included in the background of the recent Nobel Prize in Chemistry using Cryo-EM to determine biological structure.  These papers concerned conformational movies and energy landscapes, which were mentioned as important directions for the future.  These papers can be seen as references 85 and 86 of the award announcement found here.  Find out more in the Nature article, "Cryo-electron microscopy wins chemistry Nobel".
