Well, if you have to enslave yourself to years of servitude, then I
suppose protein crystallography is a good reason to do it. :)

There have been bi-annual meetings "Crystallization of Biological
Macromolecules" and proceedings have been published in J Crystal Growth.
volume 90 was proceedings from 1988 conference in France. Vol 110 was
proceedings from 1990 conference in Washington DC. 1992 conference was in
Germany, but I didnt' get the proceedings yet and I havent' read that
journal in a while. 1994 conference will be in California somewhere. A
To buy the proceedings from the publisher is very costly...US$265,
but if you go to the conference you get the pre-print price of about US$50.
