thumbnail image: Tiniest cubic ice crystals X-rayed

A new X-ray study of the tiny, almost perfect square ice crystals predicted to form in the chilly realm of high altitude clouds but extremely difficult to make at ground level could open up studies on how sunlight and air interact with clouds thereby improving our models of climate change.

An extensive analysis of the peptide backbone dihedral angles of proteins in the Protein Data Bank has been carried out and Ramachandran plots for their distributions calculated.
