About this Book
About The Product
Innovative and forward-looking, this volume focuses on recent achievements in this rapidly progressing field and looks at future potential for development.
The first part provides a basic understanding of the factors governing protein-ligand interaction, followed by a comparison of the four key experimental methods (calorimetry, surface plasmon resonance, NMR and X-ray crystallography) used in generating interaction data. The second half of the book is devoted to in-silico methods of modeling and predicting molecular recognition and binding. Here, as elsewhere in the book, emphasis is placed on novel approaches and recent improvements to established methods. The final part looks at unresolved challenges, and the strategies to address them.
With the content relevant for all drug classes and therapeutic fields, this is an inspiring and often-consulted guide to the complexity of protein-ligand interaction modeling and analysis for both novices and experts.
