Effect of macromolecular mass transport in microgravity protein crystallization

The image-analysis software ImageJ (developed at the National Institute of Mental Health, Maryland, USA) was then used to determine the size of crystals at different positions in the capillaries. The statistical analyses were performed using Origin (OriginLab Corporation) data analysis and graphing software tools as well as Microsoft Excel statistical tools (Microsoft Office 365 ProPlus, Microsoft Corporation). A two-tailed, unpaired t -test (Student’s t -test) was used to determine significant difference in mean values between different crystal groups within a
