Resonant X-ray scattering of biological assemblies

Understanding the relationship between structure and function for biological assemblies can guide identification of new therapeutics, design of biomaterials, and development of biotechnological processes. Resonant X-ray scattering provides a chemically-specific approach to characterize complex biological structures based on anomalous or resonant scattering from a specific element or chemical moiety. Anomalous or resonant diffraction can provide structural details with high atomic resolution, while resonant X-ray scattering can provide structural details with lower resolution through tender or soft X-rays. Here, we review applications, challenges, and opportunities for resonant X-ray scattering in the field of structural biology. Graphic abstract: [Figure not available: see fulltext.].
