500 pages



Wiley series in bioinformatics; 14


Contributors from biological, physical, and computational sciences describe methods for determining the structure of proteins and using the modeled structures for applications involving drug discovery and protein design. The overall themes are the background to structural prediction, predicting structural elements, tertiary structure prediction, and functional insights. Among specific topics are the local structure alphabets, integrative protein fold recognition by alignment and machine learning, hybrid methods for protein structure prediction, and the conformational search for the protein native state.
