This week we celebrate the publication of three articles in Analytical Chemistry!
In the scope of the EU COST Action BM1403 on Native MS and Related Methods for Structural Biology, we have contributed to the redaction of two articles. These review existing methods and software to analyse and interpret native mass spectrometry data, and highlight state of the art and current challenges in the area. We hope these works will stimulate discussions within the community, and serve as help for newcomers to the area

In related news, in collaboration with Michael Landreh (Karolinska Instituet) and Erik Marklund (Uppsala University) we have figured out that ion mobility can tell more than one would think about the shape of protein complexes. Coupling collision cross section and mass measurements with protein databank searches, we have shown that it is possible to determine whether a protein complex is prolate (like a cigar) or oblate (like a disk).
