Three-dimensional modeling and sequence data on protein, RNA, and DNA have contributed to the recent elucidation of evolutionary pathways in biological energy conversion and have allowed a new understanding of the molecular interrelationships between bacterial, plant, and animal systems. This timely book represents the latest information in the various subfields of biological energy conversion and presents the latest evolutionary picture. Written and edited by the leading authorities in this area, this title provides essential information for biochemists and biologists.
