I wonder if anybody could point me in the direction of some general texts
or good reviews which will help get me up to speed on molecular
I am a Biochemist who has drifted into structural work - I'm presently
involved in the isolation and characterisation of carbohydrates and an
examination of their function.
I'm interested in examining the 3D structure of my carbohydrates, which
will have a bearing upon their function, or their ability to interact with
If I get enought of a carbohydrate I examine it by NMR, and I'm wanting
to do some NMR experiments to determine some intra-molecular
distances - feed this into my package and hope to get an idea of what the
molecule actually looks like. This is not a problem - my collueague has the
NMR side of things sorted and we have access to a modeling package.
The problem is that I am very aware of my lack of knowledge in this area
and feel that I need to do quite a bit of (basic) background reading to get
into the subject.
I hope that the information here will enable somebody to point me to a
good text or two.
Thanks very much
