Welcome to the home page of the Laboratorio de Estudios Cristalográficos (Laboratory for Crystallographic Studies). We form part of the IACT, a research institute belonging to the CSIC (the Spanish Higher Council of Scientific Research), and to the University of Granada., Granada, Spain. We are dedicated to a variety of crystallographic problems ranging from macromolecular crystallography to pattern formation.

In these pages you will find information on the people working at LEC (our email addresses, personal Web homepages), and on our research (projects, papers, patents, technology, collaborations, etc). You can also visit our WebBook of reports on our microgravity missions in space, teaching aids, and popular science articles.
