Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/ 359165/essentials_of_chem) has announced the addition of the "Essentials Of Chemical Biology: Structure and Dynamics of Biological Macromolecules" report to their offering.

Biological Chemistry is a fast emerging branch of chemistry, which sets out to understand the molecular basis of life through a rigorous understanding of the detailed structure and behaviour of biomolecules.

Filling a void in the currently available literature, Essentials of Chemical Biology offers a comprehensive introduction to this dynamic area of chemistry, which will equip chemists for the task of understanding and studying the underlying principles behind the functioning of biomolecules.

Hallmark features:

- Covers all the basic concepts and ideas associated with the study of the interface between chemistry and biology

- Includes many pedagogical features such as worked examples, key concept boxes, problems, and further reading sections to encourage student understanding

- Clearly written and richly illustrated, many illustrations in full colour

- Offers a fully interactive website to accompany the book with useful links to further resources

Essentials of Chemical Biology is an invaluable text for advanced undergraduates taking courses in biological chemistry, bioorganic chemistry and organic and structural chemistry. It is also of interest to biochemists and molecular biologists, as well as professionals within the medical and pharmaceutical industry.

Key Topics Covered:

- The structures of biological macromolecules and lipid assemblies.

- Chemical and biological synthesis.

- Molecular biology as a toolset for chemical biology.

- Electronic and vibrational spectroscopy.

- Magnetic resonance.

- Diffraction and microscopy.

- Molecular recognition and binding.

- Kinetics and catalysis.

- Mass spectrometry and proteomics.

- Molecular selection and evolution.
