Volume 72, Peptide Solvation and H-bonds, addresses the role of peptide backbone solvation in the energetics of protein folding. Particular attention is focused on modeling and computation. This volume will be of particular interest to biophysicists and structural biologists.

Key Features

  • Challenges the longstanding and basic assumptions of structural biology
  • Discusses how to solve the problem of protein structure prediction
  • Addresses the quantitation of the energetics of folding


Biochemists, biophysicists, cell biologists, protein chemists, and structural biologists
