The three-dimensional structure of proteins is a key factor in their biological activity. There is an increasing need to be able to predict the structure of a protein once its amino-acid sequence is known; this book presents practical methods of achieving that ambitious aim, using the latestcomputer modelling algorithms.

Editorial Reviews

`wide ranging and very well documented accounts of the many practical aspects and various areas of application. The book should be of practical value especially to geneticists and molecular biologists.'Aslib Book Guide, vol.62, no.7, July 1997
