Structural Biology (SB) is concerned with the determination of the three-dimensional (3D) structures of individual biomacromolecules (proteins and nucleic acids), and with those of complexes and higher order structures formed by association of these individual components. The ultimate goal of SB is to understand the mode of action of these biological nano machines, based on their static 3D structures, their dynamic characteristics, and the ways in which they interact both with other macromolecules and with small ligands such as drugs and agrochemicals. SB contributes to society by supporting a range of applications including drug design, crop improvement, and engineering of enzymes of industrial significance.
