    •   Unsupervised particle sorting for high-resolution single-particle cryo-EM Single-particle cryo-Electron Microscopy (EM) has become a popular technique for determining the structure of challenging biomolecules that are inaccessible to other technologies. Recent advances in automation, both in data collection and data processing, have significantly lowered the barrier for non-expert users to successfully execute the structure determination workflow. Many critical data processing…

    •   Protein Secondary Structure Determination by Constrained Single-Particle Cryo-Electron Tomography We propose a hybrid strategy, constrained single-particle tomography (CSPT), that combines the advantages of cryo-electron tomography and subvolume averaging with those of traditional single-particle reconstruction and projection matching refinement. Its key components are the effective manipulation of images from tomographic tilt series to successfully extract high-resolution information and correct for…
