An Evaluation of the Current Status of Protein Sequencing

  • Brigitte Wittmann-Liebold
Part of the Experimental Biology and Medicine book series (EBAM, volume 3)


In 1975, Richard Laursen organized the first of these conferences on Methods in Protein Sequence Analysis to enable scientists working actively in this field to exchange experience and recent results. Ever since the conferences have attracted protein chemists from all parts of the world. Again, at the present meeting newly developed and advanced methods and new sequences have been presented. The interest in highly sensitive sequencing techniques has increased and many newcomers to micro-sequencing came to this conference.
