Nanopatterns of proteins detected by cryo-electron microscopy

Nanostructures for electronics, catalysis, medicine


A team from Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin (HZB) used cryo electron microscopy to detect regular, two-dimensional structures in the form of Pascal triangles in a shock frozen protein material. The samples have been synthesized by a Chinese research group. The method of cryo electron microscopy has the ...

Self-healing electronics out of living cells?

Shock to bacteria activates nature's electrical grid


The ocean floor and the ground beneath our feet are riddled with tiny nanowires -- 1/100,000th the width of a human hair -- created by billions of bacteria that can generate electric currents from organic waste. In new research published Aug. 17 in the journal Nature Chemical Biology, Yale ...
