Show synopsis The latest edition of this successful text provides readers with a modern and complete experience in experimental biochemistry. Part I, Theory and Experimental Techniques, provides in-depth theoretical discussion organized around important techniques. A valuable reference for instructors and students, it's particularly useful to instructors who prefer to use their own customized experiments. Part II, Experiments, offers optimum flexibility through 15 tested experiments designed to accommodate the capabilities of laboratories and students at most four-year schools. Alternate methods are suggested and labs may be divided into manageable hour segments. The book offers the latest safety and environmental precautions in each experiment to inform students and instructors of potential hazards and proper disposal of materials. For anyone interested in science. Combines theoretical discussion of important techniques with 15 tested experiments representing core biochemistry topics (including all of those recommended by the Committee on Professional Training of the American Chemical Society), and is designed for junior and senior science students. Approximately one third of the experiments in the third edition are entirely new, covering topics such as the use of the Internet in literature/structure searching, Western blotting, ligand-protein interactions, and analysis of amino acids by HPLC or CE. Study questions are included for each chapter and experiment, along with safety and environmental precautions.
