Delivering fundamental insights into the most popular methods of molecular analysis, this text is an invaluable resource for students and researchers. It encompasses an extensive range of spectroscopic and spectrometric techniques used for molecular analysis in the life sciences, especially in the elucidation of the structure and function of biological molecules. Covering the range of up-to-date methodologies from everyday mass spectrometry and centrifugation to the more probing X-ray crystallography and surface-sensitive techniques, the book is intended for undergraduates starting out in the laboratory and for more advanced postgraduates pursuing complex research goals. The comprehensive text provides strong emphasis on the background principles of each method, including equations where they are of integral importance to the individual techniques. With sections on all the major procedures for analysing biological molecules, this book will serve as a useful guide across a range of fields, from new drug discovery to forensics and environmental studies.Read more

'The book by Hofmann et al. is an invaluable tool for students (and even more advanced practitioners) in the field of experimental biochemistry and biophysics. It covers in considerable detail a variety of methods and provides very clear explanation on how they can be applied and what can be learned during the process. The book is very well illustrated and uses relatively simple language, although never oversimplified. Its particular strength is in covering a number of methods in a single volume, making it a great reference.' Alexander Wlodawer, Macromolecular Crystallography Laboratory, National Cancer Institute, MarylandSee more reviews
'Methods of Molecular Analysis in the Life Sciences is a much needed overview of the key analytical techniques currently utilized for biomolecule characterization in the life sciences including mass spectrometry, x-ray crystallography and a host of other techniques. The authors do an excellent job of integrating relevant theoretical considerations of each technique alongside important applications in the life sciences. Each section of the book is filled with literature references, links to additional information on the web, as well as key reference data for each technique. The book will no doubt prove to be a valuable resource to those working in the life sciences including both students and researchers alike.' Kevin Blackburn, Mass Spectrometry Laboratory Manager, North Carolina State University
'… a text that delivers the fundamental insights into the most popular methods of molecular analysis in a concise and accessible fashion.' Robert Huber, Max Planck Institute of Biochemistry, from the Foreword
