A challenge to improve Nuclear Magnetic Resonance for structural biology

In structural biology, the only technique available to predict the three dimensional structure of large complex molecules in solution, such as proteins and DNA, is NMR spectroscopy. To catalyze improvements in the techniques behind these predictions, the 'eNMR' project has launched a new initiative. In September's Nature Methods the project issued an invitation to the entire biomolecular Nuclear Magnetic Resonance community to participate in a large scale test of modern computing algorithms.

Golden oldie: Key role for ancient protein in algae photosynthesis

The discovery that an ancient light harvesting protein plays a pivotal role in the photosynthesis of green algae should help the effort to develop algae as a biofuels feedstock. Researchers with the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) have identified the protein LHCSR as the molecular 'dimmer switch' that acts to prevent green algae from absorbing too much sunlight during photosynthesis and suffering oxidation damage as a consequence.
