Introduction to Pharmaceutical Biotechnology, Volume 2

Enzymes, proteins and bioinformatics
Saurabh Bhatia


Introduction to Pharmaceutical Biotechnology: Enzymes, proteins and bioinformatics provides background information and knowledge on genes, enzymes and proteins. Starting with the general properties, mechanisms, applications, production, immobilization and purification of enzymes, and ending with additional applications in biosensors and biotransformation reactions, the book is organized into three subjects. Additionally, the book addresses the characteristics of genomics, genome sequencing, comparative genomics and genomic evolution. The rapidly developing field of protein engineering is also discussed. This book will be of interest to biochemists, biologists, microbiologists, biotechnologists, food technologists and all others involved in the research and development of the biological applications of proteins and enzymes.
