2 Different strengths and weaknesses of each technique X-ray crystallography -high resolution -it is hard to crystallize many proteins -need large amounts of sample -"static" snapshot Nuclear Magnetic Resonance -allows dynamic measurement -versatile applications -on applicable to "small" proteins -need large amounts of sample Electron Microscopy -need only tiny amounts of sample -the bigger the molecule the better -cannot apply to "small" proteins -limited resolution
