Biological Macromolecule Crystallization Database [NIST]
http://bmcd.ibbr.umd.edu/
The Biological Macromolecule Crystallization Database (BMCD) provides information on protein and nucleic acid crystals used in x-ray structure determinations that have been reported in the literature or deposited in the Protein Data Bank. Crystal growth conditions have been parsed into separate chemicals with numerical concentrations to facilitate data mining. BMCD includes the NASA Archive for Protein Crystal Growth Data that contains the results of microgravity macromolecule crystallization studies.
