Partial alignment of biomolecules in solution has added a new dimension to structural investigation by high-resolution NMR methods. Applications to proteins, nucleic acids and carbohydrates now abound. Limitations initially associated with compatibility of biomolecules with the liquid-crystal media commonly used to achieve alignment have begun to disappear. This is, in part, a result of the introduction of a wide variety of new media. Future applications to biologically important problems such as the structural organization of multi-domain proteins and multi-protein assemblies look very promising.
