This book provides valuable insight into the growing field of structural proteomics.
Dr. Gary Stein - University of Massachusetts Medical School, USA
A lucid, well-written, and to-the-point account of the current state of research in both synchrotron radiation and structural proteomics from different laboratories all over the world, this book successfully touches all possible aspects of frontier findings in these areas.
Excellent and topical contributions by advanced research groups on various synchrotrons (ESRF, BNL, Spring 8, and CHESS) and structural proteomics groups all over the world give the book a unique, international flavor. Each chapter represents a review article. The book also presents new research results that have not been published so far, so that readers get an insight into the recent progress in the leading research laboratories in various countries. The most advanced methods of synchrotron radiation analysis, protein micro- and nanocrystallography, X-ray scattering and X-ray optics, coherent X-ray diffraction, and laser cutting and contactless sample manipulation are described in detail. Some of the contributing authors also focus on biological applications and highlight important aspects such as radiation damage and molecular modeling.
