This book presents a critical assessment of progress on the use of nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy to determine the structure of proteins, including brief reviews of the history of the field along with coverage of current clinical and in vivo applications. The book, in honour of Oleg Jardetsky, one of the pioneers of the field, is edited by two of the most highly respected investigators using NMR, and features contributions by most of the leading workers in the field. It will be valued as a landmark publication that presents the state-of-the-art perspectives regarding one of today's most important more

Review quote

"a useful collection. . . . The book may serve as an effective reference work with a potpourri of collected papers. . . . a well-referenced and handy text with and excellent overview of biological NMR spectroscopy."--Concepts in Magnetic Resonance"Excellent. . . .This text should be required reading for all scientists interested in, or involved with, the application of NMR to biological problems. The text provides not only a clear overview of the state of the art in the field but also, in my opinion, an equally important overview of the history of the field."--Journal of Medicinal Chemistry"Nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy is an extremely powerful tool in characterizing a variety of biological problems, ranging from protein structure determination, to characterization of enzyme reaction mechanisms, to in vivo metabolism and medical imaging. . . .Overall, the book is quite enjoyable and it essentially accomplishes its aim to provide 'a contemporary overview of the legacy of these early (NMR) experiments'. . .in modern structural biology." --Applied Spectroscopy"The contributors survey the historical development and roles of NMR in a group of introductory essays, and further explore the contemporary research being done in the field with specific discussions."--SciTech Book Newsshow more
