2017 Nobel Prize in Chemistry

Nature Research congratulates the awardees of the 2017 Nobel Prize in Chemistry - Jacques Dubochet, Joachim Frank and Richard Henderson. Their pioneering work on the use of cryo-electron microscopy to solve high-resolution structures of biomolecules has provided unprecedented insights into the complexity of life. Here, we present a Collection of Research, Methods, Reviews and Comment pieces from Nature Research to celebrate the award.
