Description

Tools and Techniques in the Biomolecular Sciences reviews a broad range of modern technologies, explaining the theoretical principles of each technology, their applications and limitations, and how to understand and analyse the data a particular technique generates.

  • Provides a clear overview of a wide range of contemporary biomolecular techniques, making it the ideal resource for students and early-stage researchers
  • Uses examples throughout to illustrate how each technique is applied, and shows how the data yielded can be analysed and understood
  • Emphasises the pros and cons of the techniques presented, helping readers to evaluate the experimental options at their disposal
  • Worked examples and associated data sets encourage the reader to become confident with data handling - a central part of any experimental research
  • An Online Resource Centre provides a range of additional resources to augment the printed text

About the Author(s)

Edited by Aysha Divan, Lecturer in the Faculty of Biological Sciences at the University of Leeds, and Janice Royds, Lecturer in the Department of Pathology at the University of Otago, New Zealand

Dr Aysha Divan is a lecturer in the Faculty of Biological Sciences at the University of Leeds, where her laboratory-based research includes tumour biology, and her pedagogical research examines postgraduate-level communication and technical skills training in the biosciences.

Dr Janice Royds is a lecturer in the Department of Pathology at the University of Otago, New Zealand. Her broad ranging biomedical research interests relate to cancer biology, while her extensive teaching experience at both undergraduate and postgraduate level include pathology, pharmacology, and the molecular biology of cancer.
