The new edition of this successful textbook explains the basic principles behind the key techniques currently used in the modern biochemical laboratory in a way that is comprehensive and approachable for students who are not physical chemists. It bridges the gap between general biochemistry textbooks and the more specialist books covering individual techniques.
The second edition maintains the strengths of the first and includes the following specific changes:
- Incorporates much more material on proteomics
- Includes more information on small-scale physical methods and fourier transform mass spectrometry
- Covers the latest developments in biological NMR
- Presents a revised chapter on chromatography and an updated bibliography
- Provides case studies to help readers appreciate the multi-disciplinary nature of physical biochemistry
