Abstract

Recent advances in structure determination of sub-cellular structures using cryo-electron microscopy and tomography have enabled us to understand their architecture in a more detailed manner and gain insight into their function. The choice of approach to use for atomic model building, fitting, refinement and validation in the 3D map resulting from these experiments depends primarily on the resolution of the map and the prior information on the corresponding model. Here, we survey some of such methods and approaches and highlight their uses in specific recent examples.
