Crystalline Bacterial Cell Surface Proteins book cover

Crystalline Bacterial Cell Surface Proteins

The only book of its kind, Crystalline Bacterial Cell Surface Proteins assembles present-day understanding of the occurrence, structure, chemistry, genetics, assembly, function, and application potential of S-layers. The chapters are designed to stand independent of each other and provide a complete survey of the different topics in S-layer research. This book is intended to stimulate further development in basic and applied S-layer research.

Audience
Ideal for researchers, clinicians, specialists, and graduate and upper-level undergraduate students interested in development in basic and applied S-layer research.
