Summary: The Evolution of Protein Structure and Function documents the proceedings of the symposium """"Evolution of Protein Structure and Function"""" held at the Dickson Art Auditorium, University of California Los Angeles (UCLA), 28-29 June 1979. Its objective was to honor Professor Emil L. Smith on the occasion of his retirement as Professor and Chairman, Department of Biological Chemistry, School of Medicine, UCLA. The papers presented by Emil's colleagues, friends, and students from all phases of his long and varied scientific career provided a valuable review of enzymology, protein chemistry, an.
