Abstract

The past two decades have seen explosive growth in research on structural molecular biology. High-throughput techniques for determining biological structures are yielding large amounts of information about atomic-, cellular-, and tissue-scale organization. Advances are driven by modern high-brilliance synchrotron sources, synchrotron-based full-field x-ray microscopy and tomography, free-electron lasers, and cryoelectron microscopy facilities. The scientific landscape is changing at a remarkable pace with increasing emphasis being placed on interdisciplinary and multi-technique approaches. Neutron scattering facilities around the globe are expanding their capabilities to provide unique and complementary insights about biological systems.
