a student's guide to experimental skills and methods

Nicholas Price and Jacqueline Nairn

  • A unique blend of background theory, experimental details, and data handling guidance help students to develop vital biomolecular research skills.
  • Encourages learning by doing throughout: worked examples and self-test questions are accompanied by an extensive bank of questions at the end of each chapter, to stimulate hands-on learning.
  • Marginal comments give guidance on best practice, and point out common pitfalls and problems, to support the reader as they master the subject.
  • Includes specimen data to enable the reader to develop their data-handling and analysis skills even if they are unable to collect data for themselves.
  • Carefully balanced coverage includes guidance on recording and presenting data, helping the reader view the content in the context of the broader process of experimental research.
  • Online Resource Centre features additional materials for both lecturers and students.
