WHEN A BABY is born, one of the first things that one wants to do is take pictures of it. But for baby proteins newly biosynthesized on ribosomes, obtaining structural pictures has proved extraordinarily difficult. After a nine-year effort, a European group has now achieved that long-sought goal by structurally analyzing and characterizing a nascent protein chain while it was still being created.
