Physical Methods in Inorganic Chemistry

Molecular model of the amino acid tyrosine with experimental electron density in front
 of an X-ray diffractometer at MIT. The tyrosine is part of the crystal structure
 of phosphoglycerate mutase from M. tuberculosis. See P. Mueller et al. (2005). Acta Cryst. D61, 309-315.
