Some Useful References for the Course
Introduction to Protein Structure, Branden, C. and Tooze, J. (1999) 2nd edition, Garland Publishing, New York
This is the textbook which most nearly covers the material of the PPS course. Buy yourself a copy!
An associated CD-ROM is also available.
Proteins, Creighton, T.E. (1993) 2nd edition, W.H. Freeman &
Co., New York
Principles of Protein Structure, Schulz, G.E. and Schirmer, R.H.

This book is a classic, and although although 20 years old, the principles are still the
same and are concisely and excellently presented in this book.
