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."
