Flexible macromolecules pose special difficulties for structure determination by crystallography or NMR. Progress can be made by electron microscopy, but electron cryo-microscopy of unstained, hydrated specimens is limited to larger macromolecules because of the inherently low signal-to-noise ratio. For three-dimensional structure determination, the single particles must be invariant in structure...
