With cryoEM, structures of purified proteins and protein complexes can be routinely determined to near-atomic resolution using single particle analysis (SPA) method. Structures of macromolecular complexes that are intrinsically flexible and non-homogeneous, and often function in higher-order assemblies that are difficult to purify, have recently been analyzed to near near-atomic resolution using cryo-electron tomography and sub-tomogram averaging (cryoET STA ). The study of these complexes and assemblies in cells using cryoET STA , coupled with cryoFIB and correlative imaging, opens a new frontier in structural cell biology. I will present our recent studies on HIV -1 capsid and its interaction with host factor cyclophilin A, cellular assembly of human reovirus and infection of SARS -Cov-2, to illustrate the power of integrated multiscale imaging from atoms to cells by cryo-electron microscopy.
