Proteins: Biochemistry and Biotechnology is a definitive source of information for all those interested in this area, providing a broad overview of the various medical, diagnostic and industrial uses of proteins. The text, which has evolved from an earlier book ' Protein Biotechnology', provides the reader with the latest developments in the field and offers a varied selection of relevant case study material. Initial chapters focus upon issues such as protein structure, folding, stability, purification and characterization. Later chapters detail the industrial production of proteins, and their applications in medicine, analysis and industry. This book will be invaluable to undergraduates pursuing degrees in biotechnology, biochemistry, microbiology or molecular biology. It will also be directly relevant to those studying medicine, pharmaceutical science or related topics in the biomedical sciences. Also ideal as a reference source for commercial managers and scientists in the biotechnology and biopharmaceutical industries. Reviews of Protein Biotechnology: " Protein Biotechnology is a well written and easy-to-read book." -Biochimie. "There are few books that tie together the whole area as this book does...fills an important gap not readily covered by the standard biochemical, molecular biology or microbiology texts." -Society for General Microbiology Quarterly. "...presents a comprehensive review of proteins and enzymes used in the diagnostic, therapeutic and industrial arena." -Trends in Microbiology.Walsh, Gary is the author of 'Proteins Biochemistry and Biotechnology' with ISBN 9780471899075 and ISBN 0471899070.
