Influence of Mass transport and surface growth processes on protein crystal perfection

Research project PX/8/LP/19 (Research action PX)

Persons :

Description :

The study of fundamental aspect of protein crystal growth leads to the development of new crystallisation techniques and strategies. The present project aims to study the influence of mass transport and surface growth processes on crystal perfection. The project consists in a broad collaborative and multidisciplinary approach to the question of protein crystal quality, and includes extensive ground and microgravity research.
