The only resource to systematically review current experimental methods, this handy reference enables researchers to select the best solution for their experimental problems. For each method covered, the book provides step-by-step protocols, illustrated by typical research applications. After an initial section on probing the lipid bilayer, the text moves on to discuss probing proteins -- including membrane proteins -- and nucleic acids. The first single publication to incorporate chemical markers, fluorescent probes and genetic tags allows a well-informed comparison of different solutions for the same problem in molecular analytics.

"The book is a welcome addition to the literature that will be valued by a broad range of researchers in cell biology and biochemistry." (Doody's, May 2009)

"The quality of the book is good and its importance to the chemical community is high. I congratulate the editor on his first book. I am sure I will return to this book many times in the future." (Journal of the American Chemical Society, February 4, 2009)
