Antimicrobial peptides : discovery, design and novel by Guangshun Wang

By Guangshun Wang

Antimicrobial Peptides (AMPs), an organism's integrated safeguard molecules, have attracted large learn awareness all over the world. Harnessing and growing them synthetically has the aptitude to assist triumph over expanding antibiotic resistance in lots of pathogens. as well as overlaying the present advances in AMP learn, this quantity examines new applied sciences equivalent to bioinformatics, combinatorial libraries, high-throughput screening, peptidomimetics, biophysics, and structural biology. This quantity additionally describes new equipment and techniques for AMP prediction, layout, and functions that triumph over stumbling blocks in constructing them into healing brokers.
