Biobetters Protein Engineering to Approach the Curative /

Over the last few decades, biopharmaceuticals have transformed many areas of healthcare and have given hope and extended the lives of many patients. Curative treatments, however, remain elusive in most cases. This book describes strategies to develop improved versions of biopharmaceuticals (“biobett...
