The Nobel prize for chemistry was announced yesterday. The winning research allows for enhanced visualization of molecules. The 2017 prize went to the “development of cryo-electron microscop.” This is a technique that allows the structures of biomolecules to be revealed.
This technique provides scientists with insights into how proteins move and interact with other molecules, as well as potentially improving our understanding of how drugs act on protein targets.
In 2015 the Nobel Prize in chemistry went to a technique that “spellchecked” DNA:
