This book is an attempt to provide in a single source current state-of-the-art methodologies for protein sequence analysis. It is hoped that these various chapters are presented in such a way that both the newcomer and the established protein chemist will find useful information and directions to new techniques. This book offers a rich array of techniques and methods for sequencing proteins and peptides. It should meet the expectations of investigators in protein chemistry who wish to update their knowledge of sequencing techniques, and of those who wish to reacquaint themselves with the best available current technologies.
