Editorial Reviews


"A text for second- and third-year undergraduate students and beginning post-graduate students in biological and medical science, incorporating an introduction to the use of the Web in bioinformatics. Explains the general characteristics that underlie all structures, functions, and interactions of proteins observed in nature. Emphasis is on protein architecture and the three-dimensional patterns of protein structures, with a wealth of computer-generated color images. Includes exercises, problems, and 'weblems,' designed to give students practice with the tools required for research in the field. The author is affiliated with the University of Cambridge."--SciTech Book News

"In An Introduction to Protein Architecture, Arthur Lesk presents an insightful survey of this most fundamental topic. It is particularly timely for a new text on this subject as the current availability of extensive web-based information resources for protein sequences and structures modifies the traditional role for the textbook. Arthur Lesk is one of the pioneers of the analysis of protein structure and its evolution. ... So, needless to say, this book is brilliantly illustrated with an extensive array of large, clear stereo diagrams for the structures or motifs that are described in the text. Moreover, we believe that the use of stereo figures is essential for truly visualizing the complex 3D geometry of proteins. ... [T]his text, written by a leading expert in the field, is to be highly recommended for anyone wishing to learn about protein architecture in the context of the current structure of bioinformatics information resources."--Trends in Biochemical Sciences
