Title: X-ray Crystallography
Url: http://molit.concord.org/database/activities/271.html
Publisher: Concord Consortium
Description: In this activity, by the Concord Consortium's Molecular Literacy project, students are introduced to the fundamental principles of X-ray crystallography and "guides students through a series of activities for learning how structural information can be derived from X-ray diffraction patterns." Upon completion of this activity students should be able to describe what can be detected with X-ray crystallography (proteins in particular) and explain the impact of temperature, atom size, and impurities in the test. The activity itself is a java-based interactive resource built upon the free, open source Molecular Workbench software. In the activity, students are allowed to explore at their own pace in a digital environment full of demonstrations, illustrations, and models they can manipulate. In addition to the activity, visitors will find an overview of the activity, a test and rubric, central concepts, and their correlation to AAAS standards.
