For the first time, atomic force microscopy helps scientists reveal the exact chemical structure of a natural compound

In a pioneering research project, for the first time, scientists at IBM and the University of Aberdeen have collaborated to 'see' the structure of a marine compound from the deepest place on the Earth using an atomic force microscope (AFM). The results of the project open up new possibilities in biological research which could lead to the faster development of new medicines in the future.
