Gopinath Kartha (1927-1984) was a crystallographer. In 1953, he received his Ph.D. from the University of Madras. He then began working in 1959 as part of the Protein Structure Project. Throughout the course of his career, Kartha authored or co-authored upwards of 80 scholarly publications all pertaining to structural crystallography.
