  • Written as a textbook for graduate-level courses and one-source manual for students and practitioners in crystallography, structural biology, and structural bioinformatics.
  • Handsomely illustrated in full-color by the author, over 450 modern graphs and figures are used to explain complex subjects and draw from current examples in theliterature.
  • Presents a problems-oriented, hypothesis driven approach.
  • Addresses the needs of structural biologists by describing the necessary mathematical and physical concepts in an accessible, familiar language without neglecting accuracy.
  • Contains numerous examples with a focus on drug target structures.


Synthesizing over thirty years of advances into a comprehensive textbook, Biomolecular Crystallography describes the fundamentals, practices, and applications of protein crystallography.  Deftly illustrated in full-color by the author, the text describes mathematical and physical concepts in accessible and accurate language. It distills key concepts for understanding the practice and analysis of protein crystal structures and contains examples of biologically-relevant molecules, complexes, and drug target structures.

Biomolecular Crystallography will be a valuable resource for advanced undergraduate and graduate students and practitioners in structural biology, crystallography, and structural bioinformatics.
