Overview

Molecular modeling has undergone a remarkable transformation in the last 20 years, as biomolecular simulation moves from the realm of specialists to the wider academic community. Molecular Modeling of Proteins provides thorough introductions and a compilation of step-by-step methods applicable to problems faced by nonspecialists-especially those new to the software packages used in molecular modeling. Tips on troubleshooting and avoiding common pitfalls are included in this book, along with chapters covering a wide range of subjects, from free energy calculation to applications for drug design. Written by a panel of internationally distinguished investigators and outlining the most striking developments in the field, Molecular Modeling of Proteins is an invaluable resource for those in the industry, as well as a cutting-edge reference for students and professionals in the fields of chemistry, biochemistry, biology, biophysics and bioinformatics.
