Summary This book covers the latest developments in the physical biology of proteins and peptides. Key insights into microscopic and macroscopic approaches to describe biologically relevant macromolecules and their interactions are provided. This book also covers a wide range of tools, including theoretical methods as statistical mechanics, normal mode analysis, kinetic theory and stochastic processes, and all-atom and coarse-grained molecular dynamics simulations. New experimental techniques are also discussed, particularly related to amiloidogenic peptides and their mutations. This is an excellent book for molecular biologists, physicists, computational scientists, and chemists. It covers cutting-edge research in this exciting, interdisciplinary research field. This book also: Discusses the latest developments in the physical biology of proteins, peptides and enzymes covering theoretical, computational, and experimental approaches Broadens readers' understanding on the role of intra- and inter-molecular interactions as a fundamental cornerstone of macroscopic biological properties of macromolecules Provides a wide and useful perspective on different aspects of the physics, biology, and chemistry of proteins and peptides suitable for interdisciplinary research .
