Morgridge scientists collaborate with Genentech to soup up Cryo-EM imaging

About five years ago, biochemists Tim Grant and Alexis Rohou co-authored a software program at Janelia Research Campus in Virginia that made it easier for scientists to navigate the burgeoning world of cryo-electron microscopy.

Fast forward to today, the software has become one of the lead platforms for cryo-EM scientists. And several major career moves later, the scientists have teamed up again to create the next generation of the software.

Grant, a principal investigator at the Morgridge Institute for Research; and Rohou, senior scientist in structural biology at Genentech; have launched a research partnership to improve the engineering of the software that is now used by hundreds of scientists in both academia and industry.
