Image of the week: carbohydrate binding

This weeks image comes from a paper by Shoichi Tanimoto et al who use molecular dynamics the 3D reference interaction site model (3D-RISM) method to examine the ion dependancy of carbohydrate binding in the carbohydrate-binding module family 36 (CBM36).

The 2015 super-resolution microscopy roadmap

Overcoming the diffraction limit in optical microscopy has been a major barrier in obtaining high-resolution images in biophysical and biomedical research. Journal of Physics D: Applied Physics (JPhysD) have just published “The 2015 super-resolution microscopy roadmap”, discussing how researchers have developed super-resolution microscopy to overcome this limit.
