Harnessing the Power of Heterogeneity in Cryo-electron Microscopy

A major impediment in the determination of high resolution protein structures by single particle cryo-electron microscopy has been the presence of sample heterogeneity. Oftentimes, heterogeneity is due the dynamic nature of protein complexes, which can exist in multiple different conformational states in solution. Recent advancements in cryo-electron image processing have provided tools to accurately sort […]

Mini Me: What Makes for Good Models of Human Disease?

One of the major roadblocks to the development of novel therapies is the lack of robust and reliable animal models. Selecting and validating animal models that mimic human conditions is challenging, especially when faced with chronic multi-factorial diseases such as diabetes and obesity. Acknowledging this problem, the National Institutes of Health initiated the Animal Models […]

Mouse Whole-Brain Volume Electron Microscopy for Cellular Connectomics – Enabling Large-Scale SEM Projects with ZEISS MultiSEM

Recent advances in high-throughput multi-beam scanning electron microscopy (EM) and mouse whole-brain EM preparation and collection on tape (“Brain-on-Tape”) have resulted in substantial progress towards a nano-scale map of the whole mouse brain. These maps can be used to determine how individual neurons are synaptically connected and can be used to reconstruct the precise “wiring […]

Benzyl Isoamyl Alcohol: a Novel, Bizarre, and Effective DNA Purification Tool

DNA Purification We all use our favorite techniques for DNA cloning, such as Gibson assembly, TOPO cloning, ligation independent cloning (LIC), and TA cloning. However, DNA purification methods themselves, haven’t changed all that much since the 90’s. Historically, the introduction of phenol extraction in 1956, to purify nucleic acids from rat liver, rapidly replaced previous […]
