Understanding Crystallography – Part 1: From Proteins to Crystals

Understanding Crystallography – Part 1: From Proteins to Crystals

This is a three dimensional structure of a protein called lysozyme. It represents the order of nature. And I feel awed when I look at it. It’s an enzyme that’s in our tears and saliva and mucus, and it helps us fight bacteria. And knowing this three dimensional structure helps us to understand the mechanism …

Powering a Particle Accelerator

ISIS, well, the first thing I should say is that it’s not a terrorist organisation. ISIS is a neutron and muon facility that’s designed to deliver neutron beams for users. So they put samples in the beam line to study things like structure of materials, how they work. All sorts of things from materials science …
