Commentary on screening cells for crystals

In vivo crystals—crystals that grow inside cell organelles or cytoplasm—are a fascinating natural phenomenon and perhaps more common than we realize. But how do we know they are there unless we have a way to look for them? Read my commentary in this month’s Journal of Applied Crystallography on the method that Lahey-Rudolph et al. have developed to screen for crystals in cellulo.

International Symposium on Diffraction Structural Biology in Osaka Japan 17-20 October 2019

 

Fortunately the typhoon did not affect us in Osaka.

I gave the last talk of the symposium. This is a challenging spot to have in any program. You definitely want to stick to your time limit so you don’t make anyone miss their airplane or train home.
