Science Crystallography Special Issue

Pick up a copy of Science's Special Issue reprint on ‘Crystallography at 100’, which celebrates the insights gained from structural studies that have revolutionized our understanding of chemical and biological systems, leading to the award of 29 Nobel Prizes for scientific achievements related to, or involving the use of, crystallography, from the IYCr/IUCr stand at the IUCr Congress in Montreal.
