Abstract

Nonuniform sampling (NUS) is no longer an ethereal promise for future NMR spectroscopists. Freedom from comprehensively sampling the Nyquist grid has facilitated an increasing variety of applications in biomolecular NMR studies. We introduce the concepts of multidimensional experiments, sampling, and signal processing before looking at the basics of nonuniform sampling and its benefits. This chapter also includes some practical guidelines for applying NUS to protein NMR studies, and looks at more recent uses of NUS in a wide range of applications in biomolecular NMR.
