Annual Reviews


535 pages




This collection of 20 contributions describes recent progress in the application of physics to the study of biomolecular structures. The authors present new developments in computer-based design of novel protein structures, RNA folding during transcription, electron tomography of membrane-based cellular organelles, and radiolytic protein footprinting with mass spectrometry. Other topics include NMR techniques for very large proteins and RNAs in solution, water mediation in protein folding and molecular recognition, and cryo- electron microscopy of spliceosomal components. Martin Karplus looks back on his career as biochemist in the lengthy opening chapter.
