Structural Biology on Mac OS X: Technology, Tools, and Workflows
White Paper Jan 24, 2012
In this white paper, the techniques commonly used for structure determination are described. Additionally, some of the most important features in computer systems used for structural biology are discussed in detail, with a specific emphasis on technologies present in Mac OS X and available on Apple hardware. Combined into a single package, the technologies and tools discussed here greatly simplify the overall workflow of a structure determination. Finally, a case study outlining the software and hardware tools that can be used at various stages of a structure determination by X-ray crystallography is provided.
