You might try looking at the excellent book "Protein Folding" by Tom
Creighton, which contains a lot of the most useful recent information.
If you find this beyond you, try looking at Chapter 2 of "Biochemistry" by
Lubert Stryer which gives a more simplified treatment. You should be able
to find both of these books, or at least the Stryer, in a good library.

Hope this helps with your paper.
