This volume provides biological scientists with an understanding of the techniques most relevant to their work, and demonstrates how these techniques may be applied to a wide range of analytical problems. This book should be of interest to undergraduate and postgraduate students in a range of biologically based subjects, including biology, applied biology, biochemistry, microbiology, environmental science, pharmacy, pharmacology and food science. It should prove useful to those scientists embarking on academic and industrial research in the biological sciences without a grounding in instrumental techniques.
`... this is an admirable book, achieving its objectives and certainly well worth buying...'
