Written by outstanding scientists in physics and molecular biology, this book addresses the most recent advances in the analysis of the protein folding processes and protein structure determination. Emphasis is also placed on modelling and presentation of experimental results of structural membrane bound proteins.

Many color plates help to illustrate structural aspects covered including:

  • Defining folds of protein domains

  • Structure determination from sequence

  • Distance geometry

  • Lattice theories

  • Membrane proteins

  • Protein-Ligand interaction

  • Topological considerations

  • Docking onto receptors

    All analysis is presented with proven theory and experimentation.

    Protein Folds: A Distance-Based Approach is an excellent text/reference for biotechnologists and biochemists as well as graduate students studying in the research sciences.
