Some time before the war the determination of the crystal structure of glycylglycine was undertaken as a continuation of the X-ray diffraction studies which are part of a program of research upon the constitution and configuration of proteins. This investigation, the first concerned with a linear peptide, was stopped in 1941 because of the war, and a brief description of the results as of that time was published. The work has now been completed and the details are reported below.
