Description

Crystalline Bacterial Cell Surface Proteins assembles information on the 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.

Key Features

  • Assembles present-day understanding of S-layers
  • Provides a detailed survey of the entire field of basic and applied S-layer research
  • Potential for broad application in biotechnology, vaccine development, diagnostics, molecular nanotechnology, and biomimetics

Readership

Researchers, clinicians, specialists, and graduate and upper-level undergraduate students interested in development in basic and applied S-layer research
