Imperial to lead new £3m London consortium for structural biology
A facility for cryo-electron microscopy - a technology that is revolutionising biology - is being established by a consortium of London institutions. Cryo-EM is a technique that allows scientists to image biological molecules in their natural state. It enables biological macromolecules to be imaged at an extremely high resolution, allowing researchers to determine their structure and to thus better understand their mechanism of action.

Shedding new light on the evolution of the squid
Octopus, cuttlefish and squid are well known in the invertebrate world. With their ink-squirting decoy technique, ability to change colour, bizarre body plan and remarkable intelligence they highlight that lacking a back-bone doesn't always mean lacking sophistication. Examining their deep evolutionary past, researchers have been spoiled by their generous fossil record, as demonstrated by drawer after drawer of ammonites and belemnites in every natural history museum shop.
