Combined technique measures nanostructures ten times better than before


Researchers at Leiden University and TU Delft have combined two techniques that are used to measure the structure of biomolecules, creating a method that is ten times more sensitive. With this new method, they hope to be able to better determine the structure of biomolecules. This is important, since a biomolecule’s structure often determines its function. The same goes for more complex organic compounds such as proteins, which can undergo multiple form changes during their life cycle, allowing them to perform different tasks. Read more
