Reading List

There are some excellent books which act as additional material for the course. This is not a comprehensive list, but it helps set the scene. (Consultants and students: please suggest others - my fingers are tired)

Course textbook

The textbook which most closely follows the course material and is at the same level is:
Introduction to Protein Structure, C. Branden and J. Tooze, Garland (1991).

Another classic, rather more detailed, but less biological is:
Principles of Protein Structure, G.E.Schulz and R.H.Schirmer, Springer (1979).
