Description

Written primarily for students embarking on an undergraduate bioscience degree, this primer introduces students to the essential topics in protein science clearly and concisely by describing the basic chemical structure of proteins, the factors that stabilize protein structures, protein function, and protein evolution.

  • Oxford Biology Primers are the only resource to introduce prospective and current students of undergraduate-level bioscience to a range of topics from this dynamic experimental science, enticing readers to study further.
  • Its titles directly support two key transitions in the student journey: from school to undergraduate-level study, and from undergraduate to independent researcher.
  • Its modular format offers a high degree of flexibility, with teachers being able to draw on specific volumes that augment the post-16 curriculum and university lecturers being able to draw on specific volumes at different stages of the undergraduate curriculum.
  • All titles in the series are available in print and also as ebooks with functionality, navigation features, and links that offer extra learning support.
