interesting. my education is as a biochemist, and my interest was in protein dynamics. i knew the x-ray guys were trying to get to this, and it was only a matter of time before they could image and compute fast enough. i had expected the NMR guys to get there first, however.

My NMR buddy is gonna be pissed :)

Although to be fair, this appears to be a very special case, where they can control the motion of the protein with a pulse of light. It also doesn't appear to measure very small/fast fluctuations of the protein in normal conformations.
