Introduction to Proteins shows how proteins can be analyzed in multiple ways. It refers to the roles of proteins and enzymes in diverse contexts and everyday applications, including medical disorders, drugs, toxins, chemical warfare, and animal behavior. This edition includes a brand-new chapter on enzymatic catalysis and biochemistry, an in-depth discussion of G-protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs), and a wider-scale description of methods for studying proteins.

Protein informatics is a newer name for an already existing discipline. It encompasses the techniques used in bioinformatics and molecular modeling that are related to proteins. While bioinformatics is mainly concerned with the collection, organization, and analysis of biological data, molecular modeling is devoted to representation and manipulation of the structure of proteins. Protein informatics requires substantial prerequisites on computer science, mathematics, and molecular biology. The approach chosen here, allows a direct and rapid grasp on the subject starting from basic knowledge of algorithm design, calculus, linear algebra, and probability theory. An Introduction to Protein Informatics, a professional monograph will provide the reader a comprehensive introduction to the field of protein informatics. The text emphasizes mathematical and computational methods to tackle the central problems of alignment, phylogenetic reconstruction, and prediction and sampling of protein structure. An Introduction to Protein Informatics is designed for a professional audience, composed of researchers and practitioners within bioinformatics, molecular modeling, algorithm design, optimization, and pattern recognition. This book is also suitable as a graduate-level text for students in computer science, mathematics, and biomedicine.

Introduction to Protein Structure gives an account of the principles of protein structure, with examples of key proteins in their biological context generously illustrated in full color top illuminate the structural principles described in the text. The first few chapters introduce the general principles of protein structure both for novices and for non-specialists needing a primer. Subsequent chapters use specific examples of proteins to show how they fulfill a wide variety of biological functions. The book ends with chapters on the experimental approach to determining and predicting protein structure, as well as engineering new proteins to modify their functions.

The desire to understand protein structure has been given new impetus by the explosive growth of biotechnology and the important role of proteins, natural and modified, in this technology. Protein molecules are machines, and protein engineering is opening up a whole new world of machinery on the molecular scale. This work is a simple, but in many ways detailed, introduction, to current knowledge, techniques, and applications. The volume is essentially in two parts, the first half covering a basic introduction to proteins appropriate at the undergraduate and early postgraduate level, which will prove a valuable teaching aid. The second half is a more advanced guide to concepts and methods, covering a range of aspects not previously collected in one volume. It will serve as a background reader and guide for advanced research study.

A look at the methods and algorithms used to predict proteinstructure A thorough knowledge of the function and structure of proteinsis critical for the advancement of biology and the life sciences aswell as the development of better drugs, higher-yield crops, andeven synthetic bio-fuels. To that end, this reference sheds lighton the methods used for protein structure prediction and revealsthe key applications of modeled structures. This indispensable bookcovers the applications of modeled protein structures and unravelsthe relationship between pure sequence information andthree-dimensional structure, which continues to be one of thegreatest challenges in molecular biology. With this resource, readers will find an all-encompassingexamination of the problems, methods, tools, servers, databases,and applications of protein structure prediction and they willacquire unique insight into the future applications of the modeledprotein structures. The book begins with a thorough introduction tothe protein structure prediction problem and is divided into fourthemes: a background on structure prediction, the prediction ofstructural elements, tertiary structure prediction, and functionalinsights. Within those four sections, the following topics arecovered: Databases and resources that are commonly used for proteinstructure prediction The structure prediction flagship assessment (CASP) and theprotein structure initiative (PSI) Definitions of recurring substructures and the computationalapproaches used for solving sequence problems Difficulties with contact map prediction and how sophisticatedmachine learning methods can solve those problems Structure prediction methods that rely on homology modeling,threading, and fragment assembly Hybrid methods that achieve high-resolution proteinstructures Parts of the protein structure that may be conserved and usedto interact with other biomolecules How the loop prediction problem can be used for refinement ofthe modeled structures The computational model that detects the differences betweenprotein structure and its modeled mutant Whether working in the field of bioinformatics or molecularbiology research or taking courses in protein modeling, readerswill find the content in this book invaluable.
