Solid-state nuclear magnetic resonance (ssNMR) represents a spectroscopic method to study non-crystalline molecules at atomic resolution. Advancements in spectroscopy and biochemistry provide increasing possibilities to study structure and dynamics of complex biomolecular systems by ssNMR. Here, methodological aspects and applications in the context of protein folding and aggregation are discussed. In addition, studies involving membrane proteins are considered.
