High-Throughput X-ray Imaging Method Studies Single Biological Particle Structure

High-Throughput X-ray Imaging Method Studies Single Biological Particle Structure

A research team from Uppsala University has developed an imaging method to study biological particle structures using X-ray lasers. They used carboxysome – a tiny cellular organelle in photosynthetic bacteria to test the method. The results showed that the technique provides an in-depth knowledge in understanding the structure of smaller organisms through 3D imaging. [More]
