Cover illustration: Upper panel: X-ray dose-dependent preferential reduction of a nitrate ion in the vicinity of the Cys6-Cys127 disulfide bond of chicken egg-white lysozyme (see De la Mora, Carmichael and Garman, pages 346-357). Lower panel: electron dose-dependent snapshots of a radiation damage series consisting of successive cryo-electron microscopy images of individual molecules of extracellular hemoglobin (see Karuppasamy, Nejadasl, Vulovic, Koster and Ravelli, pages 398-412). These pieces of research, among others, were presented at the 6th International Workshop on X-ray Radiation Damage to Biological Crystalline Samples (RD6) that took place on 11-13 March 2010 at the Stanford Synchrotron Radiation Lightsource in California, USA.
