BIOENGINEERING SEMINAR Abstract: Electron cryotomography (ECT) enables intact cells to be visualized in 3D in an essentially native state to macromolecular (~4 nm) resolution. It has allowed us to visualize the structures of macromolecular machines in their native context inside intact cells. In many cases, such machines cannot be purified intact for in vitro study. ...
