Book Description

This fully updated and expanded textbook; Introduction to Experimental Biophysics: Biological Methods for Physical Scientists 2nd edition is the best starting point for any science student or researcher in the physical sciences to gain firm grounding in the techniques employed in molecular biophysics and quantitative biology. It includes brand new chapters on advanced techniques in holography; biological light microscopy (two-photon; super-resolution; and fluorescence lifetime imaging); gene expression techniques; and gold nanoparticles used in medicine. The author shares invaluable practical tips and insider’s knowledge to simplify potentially confusing techniques. The reader is guided through easy-to-follow examples carried out from start to finish with practical tips and insider’s knowledge. The emphasis is on building comfort with getting your hands “wet” with basic methods and finally understanding when and how to apply or adapt them to address different questions.

Reviews

“… essential reading for any physical scientist who is interested in performing biological research.” ― Contemporary Physics

“an ambitious textbook…. Each chapter contains protocols and the conceptual reasoning behind them; which is often useful to physicists performing biological experiments for the first time.” – Physics Today
