Protein crystallography is the science of elucidating the atomic resolution structure of macromolecules. Scientific research strongly suggests that the function of a protein directly depends on its corresponding structure, thus the 3-D structure of a protein can answer questions regarding what the mechanism of a protein. The structure guided development of therapeutics is one of the practical applications of a high resolution protein structure.
