Researchers from the IBS are working on crystallography techniques in order to see proteins in motion.
Researchers from the IBS, in collaboration with Purdue University (USA), have used a combination of novel approaches in solid-state NMR spectroscopy and lengthy molecular dynamics simulations to clarify this question. This study revealed that the movements of a protein at biologically important time scales are indeed influenced by crystalline packing. These results are important for future research into molecular dynamics by crystallography.
