"...this is a uniquely educational book, ideal as a teaching manual, especially for undergraduate students studying this fast-changing discipline, and for graduate students from other areas of science who want to quickly grasp the basics of protein structure prediction. Excellent value for money!" ChemBioChem
"... a good review of how the field has progressed and what one can expect with current methodologies."
From the Back Cover
While most textbooks on bioinformatics focus on genetic algorithms and treat protein structure prediction only superficially, this course book assumes a novel and unique focus. Adopting a didactic approach, the author explains all the current methods in terms of their reliability, limitations and user-friendliness. She provides practical examples to help first-time users become familiar with the possibilities and pitfalls of computer-based structure prediction, making this a must-have for students and researchers.
