Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Interactions between proteins and ligands support the whole of biological science. The subject of protein–ligand interactions, especially serum protein, is one of the most exciting subjects in modern science. Due to the physicochemical properties of studied substances, there are numerous methods and techniques used in order to analyse their structure–function relationships. Understanding such interactions is crucial for gaining a fundamental knowledge base relating to cellular behaviour. The field of protein–ligand interaction studies is at an auspicious stage of development, as well as being in a very active growth phase. The main goal of this Special Issue is to provide a platform for publishing research on protein–ligand interactions, by using useful multi-disciplinary techniques applied in laboratories worldwide for investigating the basic principles and practical applications, especially in the pharmaceutical and biomedical fields.

Dr. Małgorzata Maciążek-Jurczyk
