A historical perspective and a detailed guide to the production of protein material for structural determination, a key step in the process, lay the necessary foundation for discussing the most effective structure determination technologies, such as X-ray crystallography and NMR spectroscopy. Encouraging the study of genes and proteins of unknown structure in order to discover new information about folding, specific structural features, or function, Structural Genomics and High Throughput Structural Biologypresents the methods used to interpret the sequences of proteins in a structural context, giving insight into their function. It also explains how to extract information from public data repositories and how to account for variability and accuracy in the quality of this data.
The book concludes with a discussion of practical applications of therapeutically driven structural genomics, and presents future directions in the field. Structural Genomics and High Throughput Structural Biologyoffers a comprehensive guide to the theoretical, technological, and experimental methodologies used to derive structural information from encoded proteins by renowned and world leading scientists in the field.
