Published:13 Oct.2017    Source:ScienceNews
Cool advance Cryo-electron microscopy, an imaging technique that involves flash freezing molecules to see their structures, has won its inventors the Nobel Prize in chemistry. The technique has dramatically improved so that molecules that once appeared as blobs now appear in all their complex glory.
 
Jacques Dubochet of the University of Lausanne in Switzerland, Joachim Frank of Columbia University and Richard Henderson of the MRC Laboratory of Molecular Biology in Cambridge will share the prize, the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences announced October 4th.
