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.

In The Press

'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, Maryland
