A Dialogue about Protein Crystallization and Phase Diagrams
A lighthearted researcher and a disheartened student discuss the challenges of protein crystallization and how phase diagrams can be used to address these challenges. The student feels a little better afterwards, but many proteins remain uncrystallized.

More about this publication?
- Protein & Peptide Letters publishes short papers in all important aspects of protein and peptide research, including structural studies, recombinant expression, function, synthesis, enzymology, immunology, molecular modeling, drug design etc. Manuscripts must have a significant element of novelty, timeliness and urgency that merit rapid publication. Reports of crystallisation, and preliminary structure determinations of biologically important proteins are acceptable. Purely theoretical papers are also acceptable provided they provide new insight into the principles of protein/peptide structure and function.
