  4. Crystallography 101 (Bernhard Rupp): (Very good and nice introduction, some interactive parts)
  5. Crystallographic Tutorials (Michael R. Sawaya): (good for beginners, somewhat outdated when it comes to programs)
  6. Basic Maths for Protein Crystallographers (Eleanor Dodson): (If you want to work in protein crystallography, here are the math essentials)
  7. The Molecular Level - Tools for Structural Biology Education and Training (Gale Rhodes): (from the author of "Crystallography Made Crystal Clear" - website includes a Glossary of Terms from Crystallography, NMR, and Homology Modeling)
  8. Macromolecular Crystallography course at Cambridge Institute of Medical Research - 6 basic lectures (available as HTML) and 17 advanced topics (10 of which are available as HTML)

Movies[edit | edit source]

  1. Crystallographic movies (James Holton): (Very illustrative movies on the effects of resolution, R-factor data completeness etc. on the information content of the structure).
  3. 17 minutes about structural biology
  4. MIT OpenCourseWare
  5. The instructor is Prof. Bernhardt Wuensch (materials science).
