Molecular replacements

Acta Cryst. (2013). D69, 2165–2166 (


The November issue of Acta Crystallographica Section D gathers contributions to the CCP4 Study Weekend, 'Molecular Replacements', held in January 2013 in Nottingham, UK. The proceedings recall the glorious past of molecular replacement (MR), confirm its present vitality, and point to a bright future for it: once a stucture is known for all known protein families, MR will become the technique of choice for future macromolecular crystal structures. Keep up the good work, structural biologists! And may MR always come to your rescue.
