January 2007 issue
Includes papers presented at the Fourth International Workshop on X-ray Radiation Damage to Biological Crystalline Samples
Harima, Japan, 7-8 March 2006
Cover illustration: The absorbance spectra of a disulfide bond in the absence and presence of a radioprotectant molecule during X-ray exposure (see Southworth-Davies and Garman, pages 73-83). Centre: protein crystal after X-ray irradiation at 100 K and brief annealing at room temperature. Bubbles of gas may contain CO2 originating from the decarboxylation of glutamic and aspartic acid residues (see Fioravanti, Vellieux, Amara, Madern and Weik, pages 84-91).
