Team develops new crystallography method which dramatically simplifies starting enzymatic reactions by mixing a cocktail of small amounts of liquids with protein crystals. Determination of the protein structures at different times after mixing can be assembled into a time-lapse sequence. more

Researchers from the MPSD and the University of Toronto have pieced together a detailed time-lapse movie revealing all the major steps during the catalytic cycle of an enzyme. more

Researchers from the Department of Atomically Resolved Dynamics of the MPSD (Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter) at the Center for Free-Electron Laser Science in Hamburg, the University of Toronto in Canada and the ETH in Zurich, Switzerland, have developed a new method to watch biomolecules at work. more

New intermediate discovered for the photodissociation of triiodide anion, a classic textbook reaction. more

Short electron pulses make it possible to observe a structural change in a complex molecule as if watching a film more
