General description

This edition gives an account of the principles of protein structure, with examples of key proteins in their biological context illustrated to illuminate the structural principles described. The first chapters introduce the general principles of protein structure. Subsequent chapters use specific examples of proteins to show how they fulfill a wide range of biological functions. It concludes with chapters on the experimental approaches to determining and predicting protein structure, as well as engineering new proteins to modify their functions.
