Fundamentals of Molecular Structural Biology,
Edition 1
By Subrata Pal

Publication Date: 15 Aug 2019

Fundamentals of Molecular Structural Biology reviews the mathematical and physical foundations of molecular structural biology. Based on these fundamental concepts, it then describes molecular structure and explains basic genetic mechanisms. Given the increasingly interdisciplinary nature of research, early career researchers and those shifting into an adjacent field often require a "fundamentals" book to get them up-to-speed on the foundations of a particular field. This book fills that niche.

Key Features

  • Provides a current and easily digestible resource on molecular structural biology, discussing both foundations and the latest advances
  • Addresses critical issues surrounding macromolecular structures, such as structure-based drug discovery, single-particle analysis, computational molecular biology/molecular dynamic simulation, cell signaling and immune response, macromolecular assemblies, and systems biology
  • Presents discussions that ultimately lead the reader toward a more detailed understanding of the basis and origin of disease
