Summary The synergism played by crystallography and drug discovery is the central focus of this volume which comprises papers presented at the 40th Erice Course held from 28 May to 8 June 2008. A key theme throughout the book is the dependence of modern structural science on multiple experimental and computational techniques, and it is the development of these techniques and their integration that will take us forward in the future
