Cryo-electron microscopy of viruses.

Nature, 308, 34-36, 1984.

Dubochet (Nobel Prize 2017) and colleagues introduced "Dubochet's vitrification method" to vitrify water by cooling it so rapidly that it solidified to form a glass instead of crystals. Using this method, the authors published the first images of a number of different viruses, round and hexagonal.
