Electron cryomicroscopy is a form of transmission electron microscopy (EM) in which the sample is studied at cryogenic temperatures (generally liquid nitrogen temperatures). Cryo-EM is developing popularity in structural biology. This volume from the Advances in Protein Chemistry and Structural Biology series is Part B and covers essential topics.

She has extensive experience in the areas of plant virology, plant pathology and plant genetic engineering. Her latest research assignments include production of plant-based vaccines against Hepatitis C Virus (in Prof. Abouhaidar’s laboratory at the University of Toronto) and the Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) Virus in collaboration with Prof. Kathleen Hefferon at Cornell University, USA. She also serves as Expert Peer Reviewer Selector with Medical Research Council, UK for reviewing grant proposals submitted to the Molecular and Cellular Medicine Board as well as the Infection and Immunity Board. Further, she is a Science Writer and has authored several research publications (including a pioneering research article in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, USA (2014) which received special mention in PNAS Highlights and over 60 citations thus far), reviews, book chapters and encyclopedia chapters along with established track record of conference presentations. She has a recent first-author publication in the Encyclopedia of Food Security and Sustainability on “Agricultural Innovation and Global Politics of Food Trade”. Also worthy of mention are publications on “Plant Products for Human Health” in the Encyclopedia of Life Sciences and eChapter on Hepatitis: Plant-Made Vaccines to Combat Hepatitis; A Global Perspective (2018), both in the capacity of first author. Her latest book chapter on “Plant Virus Expression Vectors & Nanoparticles” for the book entitled: “Plant Biotechnology”, CRC Press (Taylor and Francis), 2019 is currently under communication.
