Arthur M. Lesk is Professor of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at The Pennsylvania State University.

Arthur M. He is the author of the highly successful Introduction to Bioinformatics, and Introduction to Genomics, both published by Oxford University Press. Having read Lesk's book on Bioinformatics and finding it to be one of the better ones out there, I purchased this book because I wanted to understand more about proteins from the biological/chemical perspective. I'm a Computer Scientist who has been working in the field of bioinformatics.

There is ample evidence that the unstructured state, common to all living organisms, is essential for basic cellular functions; thus it deserves to be recognized as a separate functional and structural category within the protein kingdom.

Written by one of the leaders in this field, Introduction to Protein Architecture explains the general characteristics of proteins that underlie the very great variety of folding patterns observed in nature. For specialists in structural biology, it contains the core of what they need to know. For students and workers in related disciplines, undergraduates or beginning graduate students in biology, chemistry, medicine, bioinformatics, and related fields it contains what they will be able to apply to their own work.

Designed for students in biology, biochemistry, and biomedicine, Introduction to Protein Science, Second Edition, provides a wide-ranging introduction to the contemporary study of proteins in health and disease. The text describes basic principles of protein structure and methods for studying them, illustrates the wide variety of functions that proteins have, and shows how their structures and functions are closely linked.Introduction to Protein Science, Second Edition, relates the study of proteins to the context of modern high-throughput data streams of genomics and proteomics. It also provides a balanced treatment of the relationship between computational and experimental methods. The text is enhanced by marginal notes, exercises, problems, and "weblems" that develop students' database and computational server skills. An updated and expanded Companion Website offers resources for students and instructors.
  • Having read Lesk's book on Bioinformatics and finding it to be one of the better ones out there, I purchased this book because I wanted to understand more about proteins from the biological/chemical perspective. (I'm a Computer Scientist who has been working in the field of bioinformatics.) I found this book easy for me to read and understand, though I would caution that Computer Scientists with absolutely no Biology/Chemistry background may struggle with some of the material. But this book is better than 95% of the other books out there. I liked the way that the book takes the time to explain almost all the key terms that Biologists and Chemists tend to throw out there when they are describing macromolecules and the problem that they are interested in solving. The book has succeeded in giving me a better understanding of proteins!

  • good book,

  • We used this textbook in a class I took called "Proteins and Enzymes". While some of the material covered in this book is useful and informative, a vast majority of the information is covered in more widely used textbooks, and in a much more accessible manor. The problems are often completely unrelated to the text, and instead of offering constructive problems covering the concepts described, most of the problems are either simple algebra problems or so easy/self explanatory that doing the problems is not worth the time. The text is dry, inaccessible, and contains a fair amount of typos. If you can avoid buying this book, I advise doing so. You will never go back and use this text as a reference, I guarantee it.

  • Nothing

  • very good!

  • This is an excellent introduction to protein structure, function and evolution, which presents, I would say, a modern computer scientist’s vision of molecular and especially structural biology.
