The company said FEI's technology will complement its mass spectrometry business, particularly in its work on structural proteins and biopharmaceuticals.

Using this technology, scientists were able to visualize BRCA1 protein interaction in a near-native environment and gain insight into its mechanics.

The study published in Science revealed a thumb-like protein domain that recognizes and cleaves a single-stranded RNA.

A study in Science describes a novel function for a protein in which it specifies for long, random chains of alanine and threonine to be added to stalled proteins. 

The company uses heavy atoms to label individual bases and an electron microscope to disinguish between each base.

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) − Researchers in Toronto have developed a method to dissect and sequence DNA from structures within the nucleus of individual cells, allowing them to study the spatial arrangement of genes in great detail.

Scientists formerly employed by electron microscopy sequencing firm Halcyon Molecular have published a method they developed at the company for stretching single DNA strands and placing them on a substrate.

ZS Genetics has started to work on a prototype of its transmission electron microscopy-based DNA sequencer that it hopes to complete next year, followed by the release of a commercial instrument several years later.

In a step toward visualizing the sequence of long DNA molecules directly under an electron microscope, ZS Genetics has demonstrated that it can identify single labeled bases in DNA using annular dark-field scanning transmission electron microscopy.
