In the last decades, molecular biology has made the most impressive progress among natural sciences. Originally connected to biochemistry, it became an indipendent branch that, inturn, permeated other specialized branches such as biotechnologies, genetics, cellular biology, development biology, genomics, proteomics, evolution, neuroscience, biomedicine, immunology, pharmacology.

This "Guide to Proteins and Peptides" accounts for these interdisciplinary relationships by discussing natural proteins, their structure, functional classification, genetic origin. It includes the most recent advances in genetic engineering, genes and cells manipulation, signaling and signal transduction, regulatory interactions between nucleic acids and proteins, embryogenesis, oncology, prions, genetic and neurological diseases.
