Practical Protein Crystallography
Designed for easy use by both new and experienced protein crystallographers, this book is for anyone interested in solving protein structures by the method of crystallography. It contains many examples of actual experiments and data, including electron density maps. Computer methods are also presented, including computer code examples. The book contains information on area detectors, synchrotron radiation techniques, and computer methods, and features the XtalView software system.
