About the Author

Arthur M. Lesk is Professor of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at The Pennsylvania State University. He is the author of the highly successful Introduction to Bioinformatics, and Introduction to Genomics, both published by Oxford University Press.


The use of computer generated images of protein structures is a welcome feature in the chapter as they provide a clear representation of the actual 3D structure of the proteins discussed. The commentary about these images in the chapter ensures that the reader is not mislead by the simplicity of the diagrams and explains the more complex features of the protein. The variety of proteins displayed is interesting, as in conventional textbooks the diagrams are often of typical proteins, such as haemoglobin. Laura Jacobs, 2nd year biomedical science student, Oxford Brookes University
