  • Details both experimental and computational methods to interrogate molecular levle fluctations
  • Provides step-by-step detial essential for reproducible results
  • Contains key notes and implementation advice from the experts

In Protein Dynamics: Methods and Protocols, expert researchers in the field detail both experimental and computational methods to interrogate molecular level fluctuations. Chapters detail best-practice recipes covering both experimental and computational techniques, reflecting modern protein research. Written in the highly successful Methods in Molecular Biology™ series format, chapters include introductions to their respective topics, lists of the necessary materials and reagents, step-by-step, readily reproducible laboratory protocols, and key tips on troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls.


Authoritative and practical, Protein Dynamics: Methods and Protocols describes the most common and powerful methods used to characterize protein dynamics.
