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 non-specialists - 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 ranging from free energy calculation to applications for drug design. Written by an internationally distinguished panel of 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. Written for: Chemists, biochemists, biologists, biophysicists, bioinformatics scientists

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
From the reviews:

"This book covers many different aspects of protein modeling and is just one volume in an extremely large series … . might be useful as an overview of the various techniques and methods used for the molecular modeling of proteins." (Andrzej Kloczkowski and Robert L. Jernigan, Journal of the American Chemical Society, Vol. 130 (37), 2008)
