Dynamics of layer growth in protein crystallization

Academic Article


  • A review of recent results that explain some morphological and kinetics phenomena that occur during layer-wise growth of protein crystals is made. The explanations are based on ideas arising from the field of nonlinear dynamics. It is emphasized that besides the significance for the quality of the protein crystals, the unsteady dynamics of layer growth discussed may have numerous other implications.
