Beginning with the nomenclature and classification of enzymes this book covers topics on synzymes, abzymes, enzyme immobilisation, mnemonical enzymes, ribozymes etc. Techniques used in enzyme purification are described in detail.
The book is written in a simple language, easily understandable to students, keeping in mind the requirements of enzymes and enzyme technology at the postgraduate level.
This book should be invaluable to students interested in the fundamentals of enzyme technology.
