Summary The design and production of novel peptides and proteins occupy pivotal positions in science and technology and will continue to do so in the 21st century. Protein Engineering and Design outlines the rapid advances in computer-based modeling, protein engineering, and methods needed for protein and peptide preparation and characterization. This indispensable reference lays the groundwork for understanding this multidisciplinary activity while providing an introduction for researchers and students to the field of protein design. Key Features * Introduces and defines the techniques involved in protein engineering and design * Provides a concise overview of key technologies involved and demonstrates their contributions to the specialized design and production of novel proteins and peptides
