About this book

Exploring Proteins offers a complete course in developing the skills to be able to understand the way proteins behave and the methods used to separate, identify and characterise them. It equips you with the skills you need to plan and carry out this experimental work, and to understand, analyse, and present the data your work generates.

It is a lot clearer that many other textbooks that I have used as the page layout is very well arranged, highlighting examples so that they are easy to follow and the written text is easy to digest and understand. Aimee Procter, Student, Liverpool John Moores University This book very cogently and comprehensively draws together an immense amount of information of everyday value to researchers interested in understanding protein structure and function. I highly recommend this book to laboratory workers and institutional libraries. Microbiology Today
