Crystal nucleation of proteins

The nucleation process of proteins has been studied by a group of researchers from Brussels, Eindhoven and Grenoble. They used time-resolved cryo-transmission electron microscopy for this investigation. The results give insight in what happens on the molecular level when crystallization starts and how this influences later the macroscopic states. They published their findings in the prestigious journal Nature:
