The Working Group page contains links to individual members' websites describing scientific work in more detail.

Please also see the CCP6 project archive: a fully amalgamated set of links will appear in the near future.

This page is under gradual construction. Fuller descriptions of particular projects, with links, will be added as the page is updated. Some sample topic headlines and illustrtions follow.
