This book is a translation of the successful German text, "Bioanalytik fur Einsteiger". This volume goes far beyond simply reviewing modern and sophisticated biochemical and molecular biological laboratory methods. Instructional design elements complement the text, through the use of charts exploring complex bio-processes, full-color three-dimensional graphics of important molecular structures, and boxes highlighting historical aspects behind the scientists whose ideas and experiments have led us to modern bioanalytic research.
