    It took Victor Lamzin nearly a year to solve his first structure, an 800-residue enzyme formate dehydrogenase. Later, as a post-doc, he asked his supervisor to let him re-solve it, but this time in just 2 months.

    Lamzin, now a group leader and the Deputy Head of the Hamburg Unit of the European Molecular Biology Laboratory, did it. “That's when I realized things could be done even quicker than that. I realized that much of the experience I had garnered and what I'd deciphered from reading the literature and talking to colleagues could be put into software,” says Lamzin. “Especially the boring, repetitive things.”

    While Lamzin had scant knowledge of computer programming—in fact, he says, scant knowledge of crystallography—he dove in anyway. After all ...
