About this book

Covers topics such as microbial pathogenesis at the proteome level, whole cell modelling, structural proteomics and computational analysis, biomolecular interactions, physiological proteomics, and metabolic reconstruction using proteomics data.

The authors have provided a thorough overview of what is still a relatively new field of study. (CHOICE, January 2007)
