Cryo-electron microscopy breaks the atomic resolution barrier at last

If you want to map the tiniest parts of a protein, you only have a few options: You can coax millions of individual protein molecules to align into crystals and analyze them using x-ray crystallography. Or you can flash-freeze copies of the protein and bombard them with electrons, a lower resolution method called cryo-electron microscopy (cryo-EM).

U North Carolina Working With Wuhan Scientistis to Research Deadly Virus Functionalization for Human Infection

Evidence emerges that Wuhan scientists, on a grant from the Chinese National Science Foundation, have been working directly with University of North Carolina Researcher Ralph S. Baric, on functionalization of coronavirus to make it able to infect humans via the ACE2 gene receptor. This comes in light of the continuing global outbreaks of an airborne coronavirus able to infect humans, and resulting quarantine of 740M people across all provinces of China, as tens of thousands die in just months.
