Crystal structure of the eukaryotic ribosome solved to 4 angstrom

Crystal structure of the eukaryotic ribosome solved to 4 angstrom
One of the holy grails of X-ray crystallography was the structure of the eukaryotic ribosome. That feat has now been achieved by the Strasbourg group including Adam Ben-Shem. The structure was obtained by developing newer faster methods of purifying the ribozome before allowing it to crystallize. The process included starving the cell of glucose to obtain a homogeneous population of ribosomes. The data set has a resolution of 4.15 angstrom although the team is currently working on a data set down to 3 angstrom.
 
The atomic data should be available within a year.
