A Glimpse of Structural Biology through X-Ray Crystallography

  title={A Glimpse of Structural Biology through X-Ray Crystallography},
  author={Yigong Shi},
Since determination of the myoglobin structure in 1957, X-ray crystallography, as the anchoring tool of structural biology, has played an instrumental role in deciphering the secrets of life. Knowledge gained through X-ray crystallography has fundamentally advanced our views on cellular processes and greatly facilitated development of modern medicine. In this brief narrative, I describe my personal understanding of the evolution of structural biology through X-ray crystallography-using as… CONTINUE READING
