Abstract

Light and electron cryo-microscopy have each proven to be powerful tools to study biological structures in a near-native state. Light microscopy provides important localization information, while electron microscopy provides the resolution necessary to resolve fine structural details. Imaging the same sample by both light and electron cryo-microscopy is a powerful new approach that combines the strengths of both techniques to provide novel insights into cellular ultrastructure. In this chapter, the methods and instrumentation currently used to correlate light and electron cryo-microscopy are described in detail.
