The role that primary amino acid sequences plays in influencing the partitioning of polypeptides between productive folding and irreversible aggregation pathways has introduced a whole new dimension to the folding problem. The volume deals with the structures of the products of protein misassembly and the role of amino acid sequences in favoring these structures.
