Summary

In the 29 January issue of the Journal of the American Chemical Society, two chemists report on a speedy new nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) technique that could finally help structural genomics groups achieve their goal of devising factory-style approaches to mapping protein structures at high speeds. The new technique, called G-matrix Fourier Transform NMR, is expected to cut data-collection times for larger proteins from days or weeks to hours.
