Overview

Get the comprehensive introduction to the study of proteins you need, and discover their biochemistry. Each chapter of Proteins: Sturcture and Function addresses the subject with a definitive theme designed to enhance reader understanding. Opening eith a brief historical overview, the book moves on to discuss the "building blocks" of proteins and their respective chemical and physical properties. later chapters explore experimental and computational methods of comparing proteins, methods of protein purification and protein folding, and stability, The latest developments in the field are included, and key concepts are introduced in a user-friendly way to ensure that readers grasp the essentials before moving on to more advanced study and analysis of proteins.
