Protein Crystallography Universe

  • Many resources listed, clear organization
  • Some text display issues

You’re probably familiar with the advertisements for various electronic devices that purport to be multipurpose. I can’t help but think that a similar marketing strategy could be used for Protein Crystallography Universe, a website that really does cater to many aspects of crystallography research. (It’s a list of web links! It’s a synchrotron scheduler! It’s a resource for teachers!) The site is organized around 12 categories, and within each category a number of links to online resources are given. For instance, there are links to the laboratory websites of crystallographers around the world. Also (important in today’s economic climate), there are links to various funding agencies. With plenty to explore, it’s especially rewarding that you don’t have to purchase this technologically savvy resource!
