Abstract:
The aim of the Centre d'Ingénierie des Protéines is to offer an integrated approach to the determination of the structure of proteins and to the analysis of their functional properties. Six distinct, but closely interacting groups are collaborating in the framework of the Centre on a study of a limited number of proteins.
