Introduction to Protein Structure provides an account of the principles of protein structure, with examples of key proteins in their biological context generously illustrated in full-color to illuminate the structural principles described in the text.
The first few chapters introduce the general principles of protein structure both for novices and for non-specialists needing a primer.
Subsequent chapters use specific examples of proteins to show how they fulfill a wide variety of biological functions.
The book ends with chapters on the experimental approach to determining and predicting protein structure, as well as engineering new proteins to modify their functions.
