Electron cryomicroscopy methods comprise a rapidly expanding field providing insights into the structure and function of biological macromolecules and their supramolecular assemblies. The 3.8 Å resolution structure of the membrane protein aquaporin, a view of the herpesvirus capsid at 8.5 Å and the 10 Å resolution structure of the spliceosomal U1 small nuclear ribonucleoprotein complex are three outstanding examples emphasizing the versatility of this technique.
