| TIPS, TRICKS, METHODS - New
approach for solving protein structures
from tiny crystals
Many crystals can't be grown into crystals large enough for their atomic arrangements to be deciphered. To tackle this challenge, scientists at the U.S. DOE's Brookhaven National Laboratory and colleagues at Columbia University have developed a new approach for solving protein structure from tiny crystal.
