Gopalasamudram Narayana Ramachandran, the eldest son of G. R. Narayana Iyer and Lakshmi Ammal, was born on 8 October 1922. G. R. Narayana Iyer, who had previously taught at Tirunelveli in Tamilnadu, had joined the Mathematics Department of the Maharaja's College at Ernakulam in the erstwhile Cochin state, which is now part of Kerala. He rose to become the principal of the college. Ramachandran had his schooling at Ernakulam. He also completed the intermediate course at the same city. He was a…

Walking along the Backs in Cambridge one day in the autumn of 1912 William Lawrence Bragg had an idea that led immediately to a dramatic advance in physics and has since transformed chemistry,
Structure of the hydrophobic protein crambin determined directly from the anomalous scattering of sulphur
The highly ordered crystal structure of crambin has been solved at 1.5 Å resolution directly from the diffraction data of a native crystal at a wavelength remote from the sulphur absorption edge. The
