The University of Glasgow has a long tradition in crystallography. From 1942 to 1970 J.M. Robertson held the Gardiner Chair of Chemistry and established Glasgow as a major centre for crystallography. In particular his work on phthalocyanine structures showed how isomorphous replacement could be used to obtain phase information. Robertson established a school of crystallography which was to become world famous where many leading crystallographers obtained their training.
In 1989 Neil Isaacs was appointed to the Joseph Black Chair of Protein Crystallography to establish a protein crystallography laboratory which would interact with and support the biological research in the University.
Present areas of research include the folowing topics :
Enzymes of the Shikimate pathway
The web pages of the 8th CCP4 Glasgow Protein Structure Workshop at Galashiels.
Some useful Crystallographic resources from Glasgow:
Processing for beginners - a guide to data processing with a CCP4/Glasgow bias.
Gladbad - a medium sized database of databases.
ADdisp - a program for displaying Siemens area detector frames on a Silicon Graphics machine.
Enrico Stura's WWW page - mirrored at Glasgow.
Some useful forms for people in Glasgow.
Why don't protein crystallographers look out of the window in the morning?
