The Biological Macromolecule Crystallization Database: Crystallization Procedures and Strategies

Published

Author(s)

G L. Gilliland, Michael Tung, Jane E. Ladner

Abstract

The Biological Macromolecule Crystallization Database (BMCD) archives crystallization data from published reports for all forms of biological macromolecules that have produced crystals suitable for x-ray diffraction studies. The information includes the crystallization conditions, crystal data, comments about the crystallization procedure, and information on the biological macromolecule or biological macromolecule complex. Crystallization procedures, including fast screens and more general procedures, can be developed effectively using this web-based resource (http://wwwbmcd.nist.gov:8080/bmcd/bmcd.html).
