[Source: Softpedia] – A team of investigators from the Biodesign Institute are currently developing a new study technique that, once completed, will allow researchers to peer at the inner workings of proteins.

These are small molecules that play a critical part in supporting life as we know it. They are involved in literally millions of processes within the human body.

Some of these processes include the development of cytoskeletons that keep cells in their proper shapes and the production of the actin/myosin complex that allows muscles to move.
