The set of tools offered to NMR spectroscopists has been greatly expanded in the last decades with the development of computer processing power. It has facilitated the use of non-Fourier transform reconstruction algorithms, leading to the ability to acquire data using non-uniform sampling. Its use in solid-state NMR, especially for biological systems, emerges as the next leap toward the analysis and structure prediction of large proteins. Here we applied various non-uniform sampling schemes to assess their performance towards a three-dimensional N−C−C correlation experiment aimed to assign chemical shifts in the coat protein of an intact filamentous bacteriophage fd virus. We show that using the sparse multidimensional iterative lineshape-enhanced (SMILE) reconstruction algorithm, biased sampling increases signal-to-noise without compromising linewidths and accuracy of chemical shift determination.
