Wiley Series on Protein and Peptide Science
Scope of the series:
Different aspects related to protein and peptide structure, function, folding, misfolding, and non-folding represent key problems lying at the junction of modern biochemistry, biophysics, molecular biology, and medicine. The importance of these problems cannot be overestimated, as proteins and peptides, being the major components of the living cell, play the most crucial role in the maintenance of life.
The main purpose of this series is to represent the current state of art in the protein and peptide science and to cover various related subjects including: protein biosynthesis, folding, non-folding, misfolding, protein function, dysfunction and disease, protein engineering and creation of de novo proteins with a desired function, fuel molecular and cell science, technology, and medicine.
