Abstract / Description:Structure determination of proteins and other macromolecules has historically required the growth of high−quality crystals sufficiently large to diffract x−rays efficiently while withstanding radiation damage. We applied serial femtosecond crystallography (SFX) using an x−ray free−electron laser (XFEL) to obtain high−resolution structural information from microcrystals (<1×1×3 μm(3)) of the well−characterized model protein lysozyme. The agreement with synchrotron data demonstrates the immediate relevance of SFX for analyzing the structure of the large group of difficult−to−crystallize molecules
