a picture New Publication in PNAS Discusses Conformational Movies and Energy Landscapes

A recent publication, authored in collaboration with the STC Center BioXFEL, describes a Brownian machine, a tiny device buffeted by the random motions of molecules in the environment, capable of exploiting thermal motions for many of the conformational changes in its work cycle. The scientists present a new analytical approach capable of determining the free-energy landscape and the continuous trajectories of molecular machines from a large number of snapshots obtained by cryogenic electron microscopy.
