[Cover illustration] Cover illustration: Logo of the 9th International Conference on the Crystallization of Biological Macromolecules (ICCBM9), which took place in Jena, Germany, 23-28 March 2002. The microscope shown was built by John Cuff, London, in 1744; it is on display in the Optical Museum in Jena. The crystal image is an in situ image of a growing insulin crystal, recorded with a confocal laser scanning microscope by Peter Mühlig, Institute of Molecular Biotechnology, Jena. Illustration by Jens Geiling, Jena.,
