NCUR 1994: Growing a Forest to See a Tree – Protein Crystallography

I presented “Growing a Forest to See a Tree – Protein Crystallography”, based on my Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship in protein chemistry, at the National Conference for Undergraduate Research (NCUR) in Kalamazoo, Michigan.

The goal of my research was to accomplish, via hanging-drop method, the growth of protein crystals suitable for x-ray diffraction characterization of its three-dimensional structure. I was working with a ferredoxin which is involved in electron transfer, isolated from the hyperthermophile Thermotoga maritima. My research mentor was Douglas C. Rees at Caltech.
