National CryoEM Facility Acknowledged User Publications

The National Cryo-Electron Microscopy Facility (NCEF), which began operation in May 2017, provides cancer researchers access to the latest cryo-EM technology for high resolution imaging. Publications that report macromolecular structures obtained using data collected at NCEF are listed below.
