About this book

Proteins: Biotechnology and Biochemistry is a complete and definitive source of information for all those interested in the area, providing a broad overview of the various medical, diagnostic and industrial uses of proteins. It covers basic biochemical principles as well as providing a comprehensive survey of products currently available or under development. The new edition has been thoroughly updated with new material. The key difference is that this new edition will include more "pure" biochemistry. There are two completely new chapters: Protein Structure - an overview and Novel Proteins from Novel Sources. Chapter 2, Protein Structure, an overview and chapter 3, Protein Purification & Characterisation, make up approximately 30 per cent of the book. These chapters concentrate on the basic biochemical principles of proteins and will lay the foundations for the rest of the book. The remaining chapters focus on protein biotechnology and have been rearranged, updated and expanded.
