Crystallography 101

Crystallography 101 is an interactive Web tutorial on X-ray crystallography by Bernhard Rupp, Professor of Molecular Structural Biology at the University of California-LLNL (Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory). Sections covering the topic include the experimental setup, X-ray diffraction basics, symmetry and space groups, structure factors and phase problem, phasing techniques, model building, and validation. Crystallography 101 is a work in progress, the next additions will be a 2-d Patterson/Fourier map program, a full MIR solution from simple user data, and a chapter on molecular replacement. Made available on the Web by the University of California-LLNL.
