Abstract

The beauty of the eukaryotic cilium has been appreciated since electron microscopy first revealed its 9-fold symmetry. In this issue of Cell, Ma et al. use cryoelectron microscopy and modeling to define doublet microtubules at near-atomic resolution, revealing an intricate array of proteins decorating the inner and outer surfaces.
