about

The textbook is clearly written, and is suitable for advanced students, e.g. during their master and PhD course time. It is very suited also for postdocs and young scientists as a textbook if they change fields in their research. The textbook represents a thorough and detailed description of the topics in each of the chapters. As the book selects very important topics of present fundamental research and relevant in medical biochemistry, it can supplement any of the text books in biochemistry and basic medicine already on the market.The textbook is clearly written, and is suitable for advanced students, e.g. during their master and PhD course time.

Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"'Fundamentals of Protein Structure and Function' introduces the fundamental aspects of protein biochemistry from both basic and applied perspectives. . this book can serve as an interesting textbook for advanced learners in protein structure and function. . The book also summarizes the analytical techniques used to characterize cellular and membrane proteins. . it provides a comprehensive understanding of the basics in protein biochemistry and serves as an interesting combination of chemistry and biology for a general readership." (Mobeen Raja, Journal of Chemical Biology, Vol. 5 (2), April, 2012)
