Nobel Prize Laureate Richard Henderson introduces structural biology and electron cryo-microscopy, and talks about the successful journey of the MRC Laboratory of Molecular Biology. He also talks about Jacques Dubochet's, Joachim Frank's and his contributions to the development of electron cryo-microscopy.
What is radiation damage? Are electrons more suitable than X-rays in structural biology? Richard Henderson talks about synchrotron radiation and how cryo-EM laboratories are being established at synchrotrons as national research facilities.
