Description

Enzymology is designed as a full-fledge textbook for the undergraduate engineering students of Biotechnology and Chemical Engineering. In addition, this book would also serve as an invaluable reference for students who are pursuing their graduate and postgraduate degree programs in Biotechnology, and all other life sciences programs that offer a course on Enzymes.

The book covers all the fundamental and inevitable concepts like Enzyme Kinetics, Enzyme Inhibition, Enzyme Activity Regulation and proceeds in to discussion of applications of enzymes in various domains including Molecular Biology, Cloning and Genetic Engineering. A separate chapter has been devoted to the study of Enzyme Engineering and Technology, which the engineering students would find useful.

Comprehensive in its coverage of topics, the book is rich in features like illustrations supporting the theoretical discussion, chapter-end summary, glossary of important terms and review questions to reinforce the learning. Numerical problems too have been provided in all the relevant chapters.
