PRAISE FOR Biomolecular Crystallography:

"Over the past 34 years Louise and I have often discussed the possibility of updating [Protein Crystallography]....However, this marvelous text by Bernhard Rupp provides everything that we could have done and more: indeed all that is required for the student of 2010. Biomolecular Crystallography is an impressive volume. Its 808 pages are beautifully written and wonderfully illustrated, many in colour....This book will be an essential part of the library of any department that claims to make contributions to modern biology....[and] a necessary addition also to the libraries of big pharmaceutical companies and small biotechs. This is a book to be enjoyed by all who wish to become structural biologists. I am also sure that many practicing structural biologists - even some who consider themselves mature - would do well to read its pages." - Tom Blundell, Journal of Applied Crystallography

"It is a masterpiece. It is the book which the MX community has been waiting for and it is an absolute must-have for everybody in the field." - Acta Crystallographica

"This is the book that molecular biologists and the crystallographic community have been waiting for." - Alexander McPherson, University of California at Irvine, USA

'Biomolecular Crystallography is first and foremost a comprehensive reference text and laboratory manual for the practicing structural biologist, from the basics of biomolecular structure to modern advanced and powerful techniques in biomolecular structure determination, and analysis and application of structural information. Figures and graphs computed from new and original data are used extensively to help clarify important concepts, and derivations of all relevant mathematical and statistical principles—many of which have never been brought together in a single volume—are presented. This fulfils a long-felt need!' - Ian J. Tickle, Astex Therapeutics, Cambridge, UK

'This thorough treatment of modern macromolecular X-ray crystallography combines a comprehensive coverage of the fundamentals with methodological details that are often omitted in introductory texts. It will be of value to anyone that works in macromolecular X-ray crystallography, particularly to graduate students or postdoctoral fellows who are mastering the technique.' - Mark Wilson, University of Nebraska, USA

'Given the extraordinary progress in biomolecular crystallography, the challenge of providing a comprehensive and authoritative overview, starting from first principles, is formidable. Dr Rupp has, however, succeeded admirably.' - Brian Matthews, University of Oregon, USA

I recommend this book to any body who are new to crystallography.
Se-Young Jun
I love the structure of the book, the way it is written in order to make it easy to read even for beginners (like me) in macromolecular crystallography.
Pablo Power
All figures within the book are aesthetically appealing and function well in illustrating concepts and augmenting points made by the author.

Format: Hardcover
Macromolecular structure determination, which encompasses crystallographic pursuits undertaken from the mid-1930s to the present, has yielded scientific discoveries often considered to be the cornerstone upon which our understanding of the fundamentals of life can be built. As the technology and information renaissance has evolved, the spotlight has been cast upon the need for a deeper understanding of the mysteries locked within the structure of macromolecular systems and for knowledgeable and astute practitioners of diffraction science whom hold the keys to unlock those secrets. In order to properly train the next generation of structural biologists educated in crystallography, it is essential to have a modern reference volume which deftly unites the various topics critical to this field of science. Such a need has been addressed by Biomolecular Crystallography, which not only focuses on the key elements essential for any crystallographic textbook, such as crystal growth, the physics of diffraction, symmetry, the phase problem, model building, refinement and validation, but also includes information useful for the practicing structural biologist, such as protein production and engineering, bioinformatics and structure-based drug design.

As a crystallographer myself, I was especially intrigued by the organization of the volume which is reminiscent of a crystallographic structural determination. The books thirteen chapters, further arranged into five parts, cover various topics as one proceeds from a protein sequence to a crystal, the fundamentals of protein crystallography, data collection, structure determination and interpreting your structure.

As a budding crystallographer reading every book i could put my hands on in preparation for my dissertation and PhD defense, this was the best book I found by leaps and bounds. Now I'm at a research institute that specializes in crystallography and it is the text for their classes.

I had been looking for a good book on crystallography of proteins for a long time. I had looked into Jan Drenth's book - but found it to be too superficial and at best, only a run through guide for last minute preparation for exams. This book is definitely a great one for those who want to understand protein crystallography real well - adequate and clear explanations, quite detailed and thorough and definitely written for a very broad audience. My only complaint is that it is not very heavy on the fundamentals of X-ray diffraction and phase problem analysis. While descriptions might seem to be adequate initially, the math is quite lacking. But then again, I've not yet found good biomolecular crystallography books which explain the physics of the problem any better. I had to opt for a mineral/small molecule crystallography book (by Giacovazzo Fundamentals of Crystallography) for frequent reference and when used together - they seemed to very good and rigorous. Nonetheless I would strongly reccommend this book - probably its the best in the market (related to biomolecules).

I have nothing to say about this book except that it is just PERFECT! I love the structure of the book, the way it is written in order to make it easy to read even for beginners (like me) in macromolecular crystallography.
I definitely give it 5 stars!

Yet I have to admit I am not yet completely done with it. The author has wonderful understanding of the subject and he presents it clearly for a biochemist, albeit non- crystallographer.
