By adapting two techniques from solid-state nuclear magnetic resonance, chemists have found a new way to enhance resolution in protein NMR (J. Am. Chem. Soc., DOI: 10.1021/ja103251h). The method could provide a sharper view of proteins in motion than is now possible with NMR.

Researchers studying protein dynamics by NMR often run into a vexing problem: The very events they wish to study, . . .
