About this book

Tools and Techniques in the Biomolecular Sciences reviews the theoretical concepts and experimental details underpinning the broad range of modern technologies that are currently being used to advance our understanding of the biomolecular sciences. Each chapter focuses on the theoretical principles of a given technology, and its applications and limitations, before using worked examples to illustrate the nature of the data a particular technique generates.

Fostering active engagement with the techniques presented, each chapter uses worked examples and problems to encourage the reader to critically appraise scientific data and select the most appropriate methods when designing an experimental strategy to undertake their own research. Its straightforward style and clear explanations make Tools and Techniques in the Biomolecular Sciences the ideal resource for any student or early-stage researcher who is looking to develop a firm understanding of the range of experimental tools at their disposal.
