Enzymes represent one of the most fascinating and meaningful entities in the biological world. In the fields of genetic engineering and recombinant DNA technology, enzymes serve as vital tools. Enzymes acting as biological catalysts have been known to all of us since our primary education. Nonetheless, learning about enzymes at the graduate level can be difficult by a lack of comprehension of the principles and a misunderstanding of the terminology employed in enzymology. This book has been written to augment the understanding of enzymology among graduate and postgraduate students. The author of this book has extensive experience teaching enzymology and has proven and admired competence in the field. Balanced text, well-illustrated concepts, and an organized stepwise ascent of the topics are key features of this book. Besides fundamentals, this book also covers some of the emerging areas of enzymology, such as enzyme immobilization, reversible covalent modification, and proteolytic activation. This book not only provides information for enzymologists but also does so in a manner that will also aid non-enzymologists in making proper use of these biocatalysts in their research. This book consists of a detailed discussion of key concepts of enzymology, enzyme kinetics, modes of enzyme regulation, isozymes, enzyme immobilization, DNA cloning, and genome editing. Difficult concepts have been simplified with analogies and examples. Furthermore, this book’s material aligns with the majority of university curriculum and exams, both domestically and internationally.

Key Features:

– Written in a simple and understandable language.
– Covers fundamental concepts.
– Presents information in an easily accessible format to serve as a quick reference source.
– A concise write-up for addressing dullness while going through it.
– Provides essential basics as well as up-to-date information on enzymes and their use in recombinant DNA technology, and genome editing.
