Undulator radiation is the X-ray source of choice for modern macromolecular crystallography beamlines. Here, the basic properties of undulator sources are described and it is indicated why they make such good X-ray sources for macromolecular crystallography. Collection of excellent data from these beamlines is not always straightforward; therefore, a number of rules are postulated for undulator data collection and guidelines are offered which will help to ensure a satisfactory experiment.
