Book Description

This new and expanded edition of the bestselling textbook has now been fully revised to include techniques from across the biosciences. It focuses particularly on those techniques that have led to recent advances in molecular biology and is designed to help students understand the theory and practical principles behind those methods. The book will be essential reading for all bioscience undergraduate students and pre-clinical medical students and will complement traditional undergraduate texts in biochemistry and molecular biology.

Excellent reference, May 8, 2003

This book is an invaluable source of information not only for those studying about various practical techniques but even those engaged in experiments in a lab environment. Written more as an overview, it works to familiarize the reader with the principles of both experimental protocols and the equipment that might be used, for example centrifuges. It’s very useful to go back to it from time to time to get a refresher on techniques that I might use on a regular basis but might not remember all the details of. Highly recommended. It’s also written quite simply, which unfortunately is not the case for all biology texts.
