Alexander R. Ivanov, Alexander V. Lazarev (Eds): Sample preparation in biological mass spectrometry
by David C. Muddiman
"This book focuses on the burgeoning field of sample preparation as it relates to downstream integration with mass spectrometry. This is an expanding field, because of the diverse array of biological questions that can be addressed by use of mass spectrometry. A critical aspect of the successful outcome of an experiment is the 800-pound gorilla in the room called "sample preparation". It is widely accepted by the biological mass spectrometry community that sample preparation is a key aspect of effectively learning more about the in-depth biology under investigation."
"Sample Preparation in Biological Mass Spectrometry is a monograph which addresses a critical issue in a very diverse and important field. Several chapters are written by leaders in their field and are comprehensive and educational, and provide detailed procedures. Other chapters are less substantial in their content. Overall, the book has value for the novice getting started, because it provides a balance of background on the subject with some practical methods of analysis."
