An Algorithm Set Revolutionizes 3-D Protein Structure Discovery | MIT Technology Review

'... The new technique is based on an imaging process called electron cryomicroscopy. This begins with a purified solution of the target molecule that is frozen into a thin film just a single molecule thick.

This film is then photographed using a process known as transmission electron microscopy—it is bombarded with electrons and those that pass through are recorded. Essentially, this produces two-dimensional “shadowgrams” of the molecules in the film. Researchers then pick out each shadowgram and use them to work out the three-dimensional structure of the target molecule.

A new way to determine 3-D structures from 2-D images is set to speed up protein structure discovery by a factor of 100,000.

A Knowmad in the Infoverse - A nascent Polytopia
Introduction
Polytopia Project Founder, evolving the meta-concept of collaboration, towards an increase in combined interactive intelligence. Designing the thought infrastructure for a nascent cyber civilization.
-
Shifts in thought, shifts in perception, shifts in paradigms, all shifts happen simultaneously and concomitantly, some we see and some we don’t, some of these shifts are gradual and some of these shifts are sudden. Our task here then is to contain both kinds, to uphold a view that is floating above the fray and yet intertwines with the fleeting moment of eternality we call now. The shifts that are coming upon us are disrupting the ways of old in the most positive way possible; they are finally rearranging our modes of thought and basic worldviews.

We are entering a new and distinct period in history, the era of the Cyber Soaring Humanity.

From : Cyber Soaring Humanity, or The rise of the Cyber Unified Civilization

which continues here: The Natural Asymmetry of Infocologies

and then here: This mountain has no top

then: Hybrid futures, Knowmads and the Notion state

and then: Hybrid futures and Knowmads (pt2)

Knowmads as metabolic reactors of information (Hybrid Future and Knowmads (pt 3)
