Cryo electron tomograms (cryo-ET) are nothing short of amazing. There is so much to see, but wouldn’t it be nice if we could identify all those structural features in terms of their molecular identity? The combination of cryo-single molecule localization microscopy (cryo-SMLM) and cryo-ET should provide a pathway to making such identification. What are the challenges to realizing the combination’s full potential? Why the fish tank?
