From the Content

Unparalleled in size and scope, this new major reference integrates academic and industrial knowledge into a single resource, allowing for a unique overview of the entire field. Adopting a systematic and practice-oriented approach, and including a wide range of technical and methodological information, this highly accessible handbook is an invaluable 'toolbox' for any bioengineer. In two massive volumes, it covers the full spectrum of current concepts, methods and application areas.

• Protein engineering by directed evolution
• Structure-dynamics-function relationship in proteins
• Enzyme promiscuity
• Metagenomics and genome prospecting
• Protein folding
• In silico protein design and rational protein engineering
• Selection and screening methodologies
• Production scale biosynthesis
• Pathway engineering and multi-enzyme systems
• Inteins in protein engineering
• Biomaterials
