Bringing this best-selling textbook right up to date, the new edition uniquely integrates the theories and methods that drive the fields of biology, biotechnology and medicine, comprehensively covering both the techniques students will encounter in lab classes and those that underpin current key advances and discoveries. The contents have been updated to include both traditional and cutting-edge techniques most commonly used in current life science research. Emphasis is placed on understanding the theory behind the techniques, as well as analysis of the resulting data. New chapters cover proteomics, genomics, metabolomics, bioinformatics, as well as data analysis and visualisation. Using accessible language to describe concepts and methods, and with a wealth of new in-text worked examples to challenge students' understanding, this textbook provides an essential guide to the key techniques used in current bioscience research.

'After seven editions between 1975 and 2010 this essential textbook has undergone a major update. The new editors, Drs Hofmann and Clokie, recruited many experts to revise individual chapters and added a significant amount of new material, thus making the book even more valuable. This eighth edition is basically a new book that covers the techniques of biochemistry and molecular biology in a very comprehensive manner - it does not go into great detail, but gives the reader a good introduction to all of them. Each chapter contains suggestions for further reading for those in need of a follow-up. Excellent diagrams and illustrations provide help in comprehension of the presented material. Since this text is largely aimed at undergraduate students, it fulfils its role extremely well.' Alexander Wlodawer, National Cancer Institute at Frederick
Review from previous edition: 'This book deserves a place in any modern pathology department and brings together a body of information which is traditionally scattered across several texts ... it also represents excellent value for money.' Annals of Clinical Biochemistry
Review from previous edition: 'It is necessary to have a practical up to date guide to experimental techniques at hand in a laboratory. This book belongs to such kind of texts. It covers all branches of basic as well as advanced techniques. The book represents a fundamental guidebook for work in a laboratory.' Photosynthetica
Review from previous edition: 'The book is well illustrated, indexed, free of errors and most chapters have problem sets with worked answers. The book is written for 'all bioscience undergraduate students and pre-medical students for whom practical biochemistry, molecular biology and immunology form part of the syllabus' ... it is a very good supplement for undergraduate courses in general biochemistry or a text for courses in biochemical techniques. [This book] is also recommended for graduate students and other researchers in applied sciences such as food biochemistry.' Journal of Food Biochemistry
Review from previous edition: '... well-written and comprehensive ... what truly distinguishes this text from others of its kind are the outstanding chapters on proteins, mass spectrometry and spectroscopic techniques. ... a valuable resource for undergraduate or graduate students taking introductory or advanced techniques/laboratory courses in cell/molecular biology, biochemistry or biotechnology.' Microbiology Today
Review from previous edition: 'I found this volume remarkably satisfying in that it answered all those 'why do you do it like this?' type questions. ... This book has already received extensive reference value on my bookshelf.' Journal of Biological Education
