Yes, you heard it right for the first time ever, scientists find quadruple DNA in healthy human cells.  It’s been around 60 years since Watson and Crick first established that DNA forms a double-stranded helix. Every now and then it…

First Cryo-EM Structure of Eukaryotic Membrane Protein from India

Recently, scientists from NCCS, Pune have studied a protein with the help of Cryo-EM to gain its structural and functional insights. It is considered probably to be the first Cryo-EM based structure determination study of the eukaryotic membrane protein, carried…

The Emergence of Path Breaking Cryo-Electron Microscopy

In the early 1930s, Ernst Ruska and Max Knoll, a physicist and an electrical engineer, respectively, from the University of Berlin, invented the first Electron Microscope. The electron microscope uses an electron beam to produce an image of the object,…
