Product description


2018 APA Prose Award Winner
"Best Textbook in Biological & Life Sciences"

"I recommend this textbook to any graduate student who is considering a career in protein science or proteomics. I thoroughly enjoyed reading the book cover to cover…. The book fully survived my not-always gentle handling while reading it in a coffee shop, mall, moving car (not while driving, mind you!), even at a dinner table. This is more than I can say about another textbook (to be kept anonymous), which fell apart leaf by leaf by the end of the quarter-term course.
Garland Science  – Journal of Biological Physics (Dec 2017), review by B Urbanc, Drexel University

"Protein Actions elegantly builds upon the basics of protein structure and function and effortlessly works its way toward an engaging and accessible narrative of timely topics such as disordered proteins, kinetic phenomena and simulation tools. This quantitative picture of protein science, crafted by distinguished authors, will enrich a generation of aspiring scientists."
―A/Prof. Steve Pressé, Arizona State University

"This very well composed and beautifully illustrated book about the physical principles of protein structure, dynamics and function was written by scientists who have contributed much to our understanding of these topics. The book also weaves in perspectives on evolution, bioinformatics, structure modeling and practical applications, providing an excellent integrated text for graduate level instruction."
―Andrej Šali, Associate Dean and Professor of Bioengineering and Therapeutic Sciences, University of California, San Francisco

"the excellent visuals beautifully and clearly convey the concepts at hand"
―Prof. Karen Fleming, TC Jenkins Department of Biophysics, Johns Hopkins University

"an outstanding book for those wanting an easily approachable, readable, and understandable description of the physical properties of protein molecules and how to model them. By far, it is the best book that I have encountered on these topics, and it will be of tremendous utility both in the classroom and as a reference…. It is remarkably clear and addresses topics that many students find to be quite foreign, breaking them into digestible pieces. I wish it would have been around when I was a student!"
―Angela K. Wilson, John A. Hannah Distinguished Professor, Michigan State University

"An outstanding textbook for students and professionals on protein biophysics, which builds from the most fundamental basics to advanced topics. It covers a range of subjects including protein folding, conformational dynamics, relationship between structure, dynamics and functions in living cells, pathologies associated with protein misfolding and aggregation, and protein evolution. The book is written by the leaders in the field, who have made many fundamental contributions to protein biophysics."
―Nikolay V. Dokholyan, Michael Hooker Distinguished Professor, Department of Biochemistry and Biophysics, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill

"Bahar, Jernigan and Dill produced an exceptional and much-needed text book that explains important biophysical/bioinformatics principles required to understand proteins in action. I strongly recommend this book for every graduate student to read, and have as a reference."
―Professor Thomas Huber, Research School of Chemistry, Australian National University
