Electron cryotomography: a new view into microbial ultrastructure.


Electron cryotomography (ECT) is an emerging technology that allows thin samples such as small bacterial cells to be imaged in 3D in a nearly native state to 'molecular' (approximately 4nm) resolution. As such, ECT is beginning to deliver long-awaited insight into the positions and structures of cytoskeletal filaments, cell wall elements, motility machines… (More)
