Today, we published a paper describing a new piece of software useful for designing and setting up macromolecular crystallisation experiments using a simple spreadsheet-based approach. The software, called Mimer, can not only calculate the correct volumes to pipette given stock and desired final concentrations of ingredients, it can also perform incomplete factorial and grid screen designs.
