Protein Structure From Scratch
Free-electron lasers (FELs), which produce extremely intense, ultrashort X-ray pulses, have previously been used to determine structures of microscale protein crystals. But so far, all of the crystal structures solved this way have required the addition of data from already known and related structures. Now, researchers have used only FEL data to solve a known structure, lysozyme, at 2.1-Å resolution (Nature 2013, DOI: . . .
