The prediction of protein structure and function is an increasingly important discipline used by the pharmaceutical industry to help researchers select and understand drug targets and refine drug candidates. This book presents a comprehensive overview of methods for prediction of protein structure or function, with the emphasis on their availability and possibilities for their combined use.
