Cryo electron microscopy and spectroscopy

Structural and chemical investigations within cells are highly challenging because most analytical techniques are incompatible with the physiological conditions of cells. Modern cryoEM now allows to conduct such experiments at native-state conditions and with nanometer scale spatial resolution. We develop new tools that can combine the strengths of both structural and chemical analyses for the study of biomineralization.
