Macromolecular Crystallography

Kinemage Home-Page

Lecture notes are continually being revised and historically not posted here. The problem sets are also changed and grouped differently from year to year. Extra copies of the Notes and Problem sets could be obtained from Dave Richardson.

Some of the computer graphics shown in the lectures can be viewed directly in your browser, i.e. fftoys and kins shown in KiNG. Other kinemages only work in Mage, so have to be downloaded and looked at in a downloaded Mage (see the software part of this web site (

As examples are shown in class, or assigned for study, they will be posted here.
