Biomolecular Kinetics: A Step-by-Step Guide - Foundations of Biochemistry and Biophysics (Hardback)Clive R. Bagshaw (author)
- We can order this
"a gem of a textbook which manages to produce a genuinely fresh, concise yet comprehensive guide"
-Mark Leake, University of York
"destined to become a standard reference.... Not just a `how to' handbook but also an accessible primer in the essentials of kinetic theory and practice."
-Michael Geeves, University of Kent
"covers the entire spectrum of approaches, from the traditional steady state methods to a thorough account of transient kinetics and rapid reaction techniques, and then on to the new single molecule techniques"
-Stephen Halford, University of Bristol
This illustrated treatment explains the methods used for measuring how much a reaction gets speeded up, as well as the framework for solving problems such as ligand binding and macromolecular folding, using the step-by-step approach of numerical integration. It is a thoroughly modern text, reflecting the recent ability to observe reactions at the single-molecule level, as well as advances in microfluidics which have given rise to femtoscale studies. Kinetics is more important now than ever, and this book is a vibrant and approachable entry for anyone who wants to understand mechanism using transient or single molecule kinetics without getting bogged down in advanced mathematics.

" Enzyme kinetics is regaining its rightful place at the center of molecular and cellular biology.... Thus, a new generation of students will benefit from Clive Bagshaw's Biomolecular Kinetics: A Step-By-Step Guide"
-Jonathon Howard, Eugene Higgins Professor of Molecular Biophysics & Biochemistry, Yale
"Comprehensive and well written."
-Enrico Di Cera, MD, Alice A. Doisy Professor and Chairman, Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, Saint Louis University
"This book is destined to become a standard reference on the bookshelf of any laboratory with an interest in kinetic approaches to biology. Not just a `how to' handbook but also an accessible primer in the essentials of kinetic theory & practice."
-Prof. Michael Geeves, University of Kent
"This book is a much needed modern update for the underserved field of biomolecular kinetics. It covers the practical `how to' and troubleshooting information for experiments together with the fundamentals in one place. It is written by a genuine expert in kinetic techniques, and is beautifully illustrated. It is highly accessible to readers at all levels, and I highly recommend this text to anyone wishing to learn more about the power and potential applications of kinetics techniques."
-Prof. Emma Raven, University of Leicester
"a gem of a textbook which manages to produce a genuinely fresh, concise yet comprehensive guide through the nuances of biomolecular kinetics, penned by one of the giants of this complex but fundamental field of the life sciences"
-Prof. Mark Leake, University of York
"This well written, concise but very comprehensive text will be the go-to book for those wanting to take advantage of new (and classic) approaches, and the challenges and the opportunities they provide."
-Bob Callender, Professor of Biochemistry, Albert Einstein College of Medicine
"This is a comprehensive and detailed yet clear and much needed book. Kinetic methods are applied throughout biological sciences and for everyone who is using them this is a must-read."
-Per Jemth, Department of Medical Biochemistry and Microbiology, Uppsala University
"Finally, a book that supports a practical entry into kinetics for enzymologists and other biochemists. The field sorely needs a solid, accessible kinetics text like this...."
-Bruce A. Palfey, Department of Biological Chemistry, University of Michigan Medical School
"a lively book with a splendid balance between the description of most recent experimental work and easily comprehensible theoretical interpretations.... [It] should help to encourage students to enter this exciting field and help research workers to expand the range of their endeavours."
-Herbert Gutfreund, University of Bristol
