Congrats to Mariana for her paper on subunit rotation in the ribosome. By developing a novel coarse-grained model, she was able to perform the first simulations in which many spontaneous large-scale rotary motions have been observed. These simulations were used to characterize how closely single-molecule probes are able to report on rotation. The results appeared today in Biophysical Journal.
