Virtual issue: Methods Madness: 2022
This past March, sixteen prominent scientific methods across biochemistry and molecular biology were matched up again in a winner-takes-all tournament, and scientists around the world voted to decide which methods advanced to the next round. The competition in 2022 was really fierce, and #TeamMassSpec emerged victorious, defeating #TeamCryo once again to keep the crown and be named the 2022 #JBCMethodsMadness champion! This virtual issue highlights the insights and innovations that have resulted from the application of the techniques that made it to the “Free Energy Four” semifinals: mass spectrometry, cryo-EM/ET, CRISPR and advanced chromatography. The JBC is now a gold open-access journal, and all articles — including the articles in this collection — are free to access. We hope you enjoy this selection of papers, and we look forward to next year’s JBC Methods Madness!
