Description

Retaining the proven didactic concept of the successful "Chemical Biology - Learning through Case Studies", this sequel features 27 new case studies, reflecting the rapid growth in this interdisciplinary topic over the past few years.
Edited by two of the world's leading researchers in the field, this textbook introduces students and researchers to the modern approaches in chemical biology, as well as important results, and the techniques and methods applied. Each chapter presents a different biological problem taken from everyday lab work, elucidated by an international team of renowned scientists.
With its broad coverage, this is a valuable source of information for students, graduate students, and researchers working on the borderline between chemistry, biology, and biochemistry.

Author Information

Herbert Waldmann obtained his PhD in organic chemistry from the University of Mainz, Germany, in 1985 working with Professor H. Kunz, after which he completed a postdoctoral appointment with Professor G. Whitesides at Harvard University (USA). He was appointed as Professor of Organic Chemistry at the University of Bonn (1991), full Professor of Organic Chemistry at the University of Karlsruhe (1993), and Director at the Max-Planck-Institute of Molecular Physiology Dortmund and Professor of Organic Chemistry at the University of Dortmund, Germany, in 1999. He has received numerous awards, e.g. the Otto-Bayer-Award (2001), the Max Bergmann Medal (2003), and recently the Emil-Fischer-Prize (2012). His research interests lie in bioactive compound development, target identification, and the chemical biology of Ras proteins.

Petra Janning studied chemistry at the University of Münster, Germany, and did her PhD thesis at the Institute for Analytical Sciences in Dortmund, Germany in 1995. After different positions where she worked in the area of analytical chemistry and on the borderline between chemistry and biology she joined the Max-Planck-Institute of Molecular Physiology, Dortmund, in the department of Professor H. Waldmann, where she is currently working. She is responsible for the Bioorganic Practical Course and the analytics in the department. She focused her work on mass spectrometry based methods in proteome research in particular in target protein identification of small molecules.
