Protein Physics: A Course of Lectures (Soft Condensed Matter, Complex Fluids and Biomaterials) – 2nd edition covers the most general problems of folding, protein structure, and function. It describes key experimental facts and introduces theories and concepts, dealing with membrane, fibrous, and water-soluble globular proteins, in both their native and denatured states.
The etextbook systematically presents and summarizes the results of several decades of worldwide fundamental research on protein physics, folding, structure, and describing many physical models that help readers make estimates and predictions of physical processes that occur in proteins.
New to this revised edition is the inclusion of novel information on amyloid aggregation, natively disordered proteins, protein folding in vivo, misfolding, chameleon proteins, protein motors, advances in protein engineering & design, and advances in the modeling of protein folding.
Further, the ebook provides problems with solutions, many updated and new references, and physical and mathematical appendices. In addition, new figures (including stereo drawings, with a special appendix showing how to use them) are added, making this an ideal resource for graduate and advanced undergraduate college students and researchers in academia in the fields of physics, biotechnology, biochemistry, biophysics, biologists, and chemistry.
