The quality of an X-ray structure determination is directly correlated with the size and the macromolrcules of the crystalline samples; thus, refinement of conditions should always be a primary component of crystal growth. Keep up-to-date with NHBS products, news and offers. Praise of Chromosome Folly. Molecules that Changed the World. Guide to the Human Genome. Initial crystals are frequently microcrystals or clusters, and often have unfavorable morphologies or yield poor diffraction intensities.

Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory Press. This extensively illustrated book provides a biochemical context in which crystal growth can be pursued and instructs readers in practical aspects of the technology, laying out effective strategies for success.

Click to have a closer look. Even when the initial samples are suitable, often marginally, refinement of conditions is recommended in order to obtain the highest quality crystals that can be grown.


Optimization of crystallization conditions for biological macromolecules.

Salamanders in Regeneration Research. Have a Nice DNA. About this book Contents Related titles. Here, an attempt is made to provide guidance on how optimization might best be applied to crystal-growth problems, and what parameters and factors might most profitably be explored to accelerate and achieve success.

The improvement process is referred to as optimization, and it entails sequential, incremental changes in the chemical parameters that influence crystallization, such as pH, ionic strength and precipitant concentration, as well as physical parameters such as temperature, sample volume and overall methodology.
