Research and Markets: Prediction of Protein Structures, Functions, and Interactions.

DUBLIN, Ireland -- Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of John Wiley John Wiley may refer to:
  • John Wiley & Sons, publishing company
  • John C. Wiley, American ambassador
  • John D. Wiley, Chancellor of the University of Wisconsin-Madison
  • John M. Wiley (1846–1912), U.S.
 and Sons Ltd's new report "Prediction of Protein Structures, Functions, and Interactions" to their offering.

The prediction of protein structure and function is an increasingly important discipline used by the pharmaceutical industry to help researchers select and understand drug targets and refine drug candidates. Prediction of Protein Structures, Functions, and Interactions presents a comprehensive overview of methods for prediction of protein structure or function, with the emphasis on their availability and possibilities for their combined use. It is an essential guide to the newest, best methods for prediction of protein structure and functions, for researchers and advanced students.

Key Topics Covered:

* List of Contributors.

* Preface pref·ace  
a. A preliminary statement or essay introducing a book that explains its scope, intention, or background and is usually written by the author.

b. An introductory section, as of a speech.


* 1 The Basics of Protein Sequence Analysis (Katarzyna H. Kaminska, Kaja Milanowska and Janusz M. Bujnicki).

* 2 First Steps of Protein Structure Prediction Protein structure prediction is one of the most important goals pursued by bioinformatics and theoretical chemistry. Its aim is the prediction of the three-dimensional structure of proteins from their amino acid sequences, sometimes including additional relevant information such as  (Karolina Majorek, Lukasz Kozlowski, Marcin J akalski and Janusz M. Bujnicki).

* 3 Automated Prediction of Protein Function from Sequence (Meghana Chitale, Troy Hawkins and Daisuke Kihara).

* 4 Template (1) A pre-designed document or data file formatted for common purposes such as a fax, invoice or business letter. If the document contains an automated process, such as a word processing macro or spreadsheet formula, then the programming is already written and embedded in the  Based Prediction of Three-dimensional Protein Structures: Fold Recognition and Comparative Modeling (Jan Kosi'nski, Karolina L. Tkaczuk, Joanna M. Kasprzak and Janusz M. Bujnicki).

* 5 Template-free Predictions of Three-dimensional Protein Structures: From First Principles to Knowledge-based Potentials (Dominik Gront, Dorota Latek, Mateusz Kurcinski and Andrzej Kolinski).

* 6 Quality Assessment of Protein Models (Bjorn Wallner and Arne Elofsson).

* 7 Prediction of Molecular Interactions from 3D-structures: From Small Ligands to Large Protein Complexes (Kengo Kinoshita, Hidetoshi Kono and Kei Yura).

* 8 Structure-based Prediction of Enzymes and Their Active Sites (James W. Torrance and Janet M. Thornton).

* 9 The Prediction of Macromolecular mac·ro·mol·e·cule  
A very large molecule, such as a polymer or protein, consisting of many smaller structural units linked together. Also called supermolecule.
 Complexes by Docking (Sjoerd J. de Vries de Vries. For some persons thus named use Vries. , Marc van Dijk van Dijk can refer to:
  • Arjan van Dijk (born 1987 in Utrecht(, dutch football player
  • Bill van Dijk (born 1947 in Rotterdam), dutch singer
  • Bryan van Dijk (born 1981), dutch judoka
  • Dick van Dijk (born 1946 in Gouda), dutch football player
 and Alexandre M.J.J. Bonvin).

* 10 Protein Function Prediction via Analysis of Interactomes (Elena Nabieva and Mona Singh Mona Singh (born October 8 1980) is an Indian model and television actress. Personal
Singh lives in Lokhandwala, Mumbai [1] and has an elder sister who lives in New Zealand[2].

She is not married.

* 11 Integrating Prediction of Structure, Function, and Interactions (Michael Tress, Janusz M. Bujnicki, Gonzalo Lopez and Alfonso Valencia).
