A goal of structural biology ? and of structural genomics in particular ? is to improve the underlying methodology for high-throughput determination of three-dimensional structures of biological macromolecules. Here we address issues related to the development, automation and streamlining of the process of macromolecular X-ray crystal structure solution.
