-Derivation of 3D structure from a series of
2D projections obtained at different angles through a specimen imaged with transmission
electron microscopy. Double tilt tomography involves obtaining projections as
the specimen is rotated around a single fixed axis, followed by a second tilt
axis usually 90° rotated from the first. Resolution of double tilt tomograms
is usually greater than single tilt because more information is obtained from
