Cryo-electron microscopy, X-ray crystallography and NMR are all used to investigate the the structure and function of biological molecules, and their complexes. Of these techniques cryo-electron microscopy is the least developed and also the one in which there is the greatest room for improvement.

I will present a brief overview of the cryo-electron microscopy technique and illustrate how this differs from more traditional electron microscopy. I will then look at the current limitations and efforts being made to improve the technique.

This talk is part of the Electron Microscopy Group Seminars series.
