About this book

This text provides a superb introduction to the study of proteins, focusing on their structure and function. It covers the importance of proteins in biochemistry and introduces the concepts connected with protein folding in a user-friendly manner. The accompanying web site will include animated protein structures, problems and answers, and links to protein databases and other sites of interest. invaluable resource...students of biochemistry, chemistry, genetics, structural biology, as well as medical and dental students will greatly benefit from reading this text... (Annals of Biomedical Engineering, December 2005) "...a worthwhile investment for the beginning student or for the advanced scientist seeking a better grasp of protein chemistry..." (Clinical Chemistry, November 2005) "An outstanding resource for introductory protein chemistry courses and a solid reference for those interested in proteins." (CHOICE, November 2005) " ... the distillation of years of lecturing and undergraduate feedback." (Journal of Biological Education, Spring 2006: Vol.40; 2)
