X-ray Crystallography


Provides the fundamentals for solving atomic resolution protein structures

Course Director: John Johnson Jr.
Term: Winter (every other year)
Credits: 3.0

The crystallography course describes the theoretical foundations of crystallography, covering all the areas described in the syllabus. The specific lecture titles provide additional details of the course content. The main purpose is to describe what goes on within the sophisticated crystallography programs used for modern crystal structure determination. While there is an effort to provide some practical experience in crystal structure solution, the main focus is on theory. The successful student will have a firm grasp of all aspects of crystallography and crystal structure determination.
