Issue compiled and edited by John Spence and Henry Chapman
The recent invention of the hard X-ray laser (XFEL) has opened new vistas for structural and dynamic biology. This issue reviews the latest work, outlines opportunities for future research, and describes the new techniques which take advantage of the atomic spatial resolution and femtosecond time resolution of the XFEL. The long-term aim of this work is make movies of molecular machines at work, including those responsible for photosynthesis, protein synthesis and the development of new drugs.
This issue is based on a Royal Society discussion meeting, details of which can be found here.
