New Mathematics Advances the Frontier of Macromolecular Imaging

August 10, 2015

Berkeley Lab researchers have introduced new mathematical theory and an algorithm, which they call "Multi-tiered iterative phasing (M-TIP)," to solve the reconstruction problem from fluctuation X-ray scattering data. This approach is an important step in unlocking the door to new advances in biophysics and has the promise of ushering in new tools to help solve some of the most challenging problems in the life sciences.
