@from:Praise for the Volume
@qu:"The individual sections of the book are nicely balanced and provide detailed background information as well as outlines of the application and use of many of the programs... Coverage of protein structural predictions is excellent and the individual algorithms are explained in sufficient detail... Large-scale sequence similarity comparisons, detection of distant homologies, and pattern recognition are covered. This section of the book should be particularly useful to new researchers in this area and serve as a reference to those actively involved in the field... The coverage [of the third section] is outstanding and should serve as a useful reference to individuals interested in multiple alignments and phylogenetic tress. The breadth of topics covered by this volume of Methods in Enzymology is outstanding and the book should become very popular among a variety of biological investigators."

@from:Praise for the Series
@qu:"The Methods in Enzymology series represents the gold-standard."
@qu:"It is a true 'methods' series, including almost every detail from basic theory to sources of equipment and reagents, with timely documentation provided on each page."
@qu:"The series has been following the growing, changing and creation of new areas of science. It should be on the shelves of all libraries in the world as a whole collection."
