In Antimicrobial Peptides (PDF) the small team of expert authors provides the field in an accessible and comprehensive manner that is well suited for junior researchers and students.

The result is a systematically structured and highly readable introduction to antimicrobial peptides, their biological function, structure, and mode of action. The authors point the way towards a rational design of this possibly highly effective new class of clinical antibiotics on the edge of industrial application. They do this by debating their design principles, target membranes and structure-activity relationships. The last part of the ebook explains recent successes in the application of peptides as anticancer agents.
