Editorial Review
From Book News, Inc.
These volumes essentially constitute the invited presentations as well as the deliberations at the panel discussions of the June 1993 conference held under the auspices of the State University of New York at Albany Department of Chemistry and organized by the University's Institute of Biomolecular Stereodynamics. Volume 1 (43-8, $125) contains 23 papers on topics including structural studies of interleukin-8 and interleukin-4; conformational flexibility in biochemical regulation; and synthesis and biological studies with DNA analogs. Volume 2 (44-6, $125) contains 26 papers on topics including intramolecular DNA triple helix and regulation of gene expression; a parallel-stranded double helix at atomic resolution; and a new approach to calculate the hydration of DNA molecules. Beautiful production, including color plates, but no index. Annotation copyright Book News, Inc. Portland, Or.
