Most comprehensive knowledge source for Protein Scientists

Protein Science Encyclopedia , the single most comprehensive knowledge source for protein scientists covers :

  • Structure of proteins
  • Function of proteins
  • analytical methods of proteins
  • engineering of proteins
  • medical aspects of proteins

This encyclopedia is only available online . It includes the 160 most up-to-date and relevant content from a collection of 1,000 chapters from books published over the last four years, of which 160 selected chapters have been assembled into a fully searchable electronic encyclopedia.
