Advances in Protein Chemistry and Structural Biology

Series Editor:

  • Rossen Donev, Swansea University, Swansea, Wales, UK

This eclectic volume features two major topics: applications of mass spectrometry in bioscience; and computational methods for analysis of protein structure and interactions with other macromolecules.

Published continuously since 1944, the Advances in Protein Chemistry and Structural Biology series has been the essential resource for protein chemists. Each volume brings forth new information about protocols and analysis of proteins. Each thematically organized volume is guest edited by leading experts in a broad range of protein-related topics.

View full description


The intended audiences for this volume are researchers and specialists in protein structure and interactions, cancer biology, psychiatry and mass spectrometry. This volume would be also of a great use to students working on projects from the abovementioned areas.
