Authored by key players in the field, this volume offers a relevant presentation of peptide and protein chemistry. It provides key insight into the fast-developing field of proteomics, including structural and functional aspects, biochip development, and clinical potential. It include schapters on bioinformatics and proteomics and present the latest information on concerns over protein degradation and the post-translational modifications of proteins and peptides. The book also includes a section on protein-coupled diseases that presents increasing evidence of the pathological impact of protein misfolding in relation to various neurodegenerative diseases, as well as a section on the role of proteins in cancer.
