Handbook of Proteins provides scientists and students with a focused and accessible resource covering all aspects of protein biochemistry. It describes traditional and state-of-the-art techniques for elucidating protein function and structure.
Derived from the acclaimed
Encyclopedia of Life Sciences
Presented in full-colour throughout
Assembles more than 200 peer-reviewed articles, written by top scientists in each eld
The articles are reliable, self-contained and cross-referenced throughout
Almost all aspects of protein structure, function, and chemistry are illuminated by one or more articles
Numerous articles also provide an introduction to methods for purifying proteins, determining their structures and properties, and cataloguing them in databases
Dozens of additional articles detail important aspects of enzymatic catalysis and protein-ligand interactions
The Handbook of Proteins is a comprehensive and authoritative resource for teachers, students and researchers in the molecular life sciences. The easy layout encourages frequent retrieval.
