Research output: Chapter in Book/Entry/PoemConference contribution


Fluorescence Stokes shift measurements of tryptophan in bacteriophage Φ6 were used to determine solvent exposure. It is determined that the envelope proteins are in a more hydrophobic environment than internal proteins of the polymerase complex.
