Summary Examining the chemical modification of biological polymers and the emerging applications of this technology, Chemical Modification of Biological Polymers reflects the change in emphasis in this subsection of biotechnology from the study of protein structure and function toward applications in therapeutics and diagnostics. HighlightsThe basic organic chemistry of the modification proteins, nucleic acids, oligosaccharides, polysaccharides, and their applicationsNew analytical technologies used to characterize the chemical
