BREM provided high-resolution imaging for the First atomic-scale 'movie' of microtubules under construction

Researchers from the Center for Genomic Regulation (CRG), Spanish National Cancer Research Center (CNIO), and Spanish National Research Council (IBMB-CSIC) have made a significant advance in understanding cell division by creating the first atomic-scale 'movie' of microtubule construction.

This achievement, published in "Science", was made possible through the participation of the Basque Resource for Electron Microscopy (BREM), which provided essential high-resolution imaging for the study.

This discovery paves the way for more targeted treatments in diseases such as cancer and neurodevelopmental disorders, marking a milestone in biomedical research.
