Antimicrobial Peptides (AMPs) are an organism's built-in defence molecules that have attracted extensive research attention worldwide. Harnessing and creating them synthetically has the potential to help overcome increasing antibiotic resistance in many pathogens. In addition to covering the current advances in AMP research, this volume examines new technologies such as bioinformatics, combinatorial libraries, high-throughput screening, peptidomimetics, biophysics, and structural biology. This volume also describes new methods and strategies for AMP prediction, design, and applications that overcome obstacles in developing them into therapeutic agents.
