International Tables for Crystallography, Volume F, Crystallography of biological macromolecules is an expert guide to macromolecular crystallography for the modern structural biologist. It was commissioned by the International Union of Crystallography in recognition of the extraordinary contributions that knowledge of macromolecular structure has made, and will make, to the analysis of biological systems, from enzyme catalysis to the workings of a whole cell, and to the growing field of structural genomics. The volume covers all stages of a crystallographic analysis from the preparation of samples using the techniques of molecular biology, through crystallization, diffraction data collection, phase determination, structure validation and structure analysis.
