English abstract

G. N. Ramachandran has worked in various fields in anomalous scattering, and the phase problem, the analysis of the structure of fibres, and the conformational analysis of macromolecular structures. He is considered to be one of the founders of the rapidly developing field of molecular biophysics, his contributions are mainly to the theory of molecular structure of biopolymers in relation to their biological activities. In his 49 years of productive life, he has collaborated with 81 colleagues and students and has published 304 papers during 1942 – 1990. The highest collaboration coefficient is 0.86. He has the highest collaborator in were V. Sasisekharan (18) papers, R. Srinivasan (15) papers. The core journals publishing his papers were: Proceedings of the Indian Academy of Sciences, Acta Crystolographica, Current Science, Nature and Biopolymers.
