About this book

Protein Families describes approaches for recognizing and classifying proteins into families of evolutionary related proteins. Reviewing all the major resources for classifying protein families, Protein Families combines descriptions of general philosophies of protein family classification systems with detailed descriptions and examples of selected families found in different biological systems. Scientists in diverse areas of biology and protein science will learn how to use the various resources and databases and gain valuable insight into how proteins evolve and how new functional repertoires emerge.
