FROM THE PREFACE: Volumes 96 to 98, Parts J, K, and L of the Biomembranes series, focus on methodology to study membrane biogenesis, assembly, targeting, and recycling. This field is one of the very exciting and active areas of research. Future volumes will deal with transport and other aspects of membrane function.

"The Methods in Enzymology series represents the gold-standard."
Praise for the Series, --NEUROSCIENCE

"Incomparably useful."
"It is a true 'methods' series, including almost every detail from basic theory to sources of equipment and reagents, with timely documentation provided on each page."
"The series has been following the growing, changing and creation of new areas of science. It should be on the shelves of all libraries in the world as a whole collection."
"The appearance of another volume in that excellent series, Methods in Enzymology, is always a cause for appreciation for those who wish to successfully carry out a particular technique or prepare an enzyme or metabolic intermediate without the tiresome prospect of searching through unfamiliar literature and perhaps selecting an unproven method which is not easily reproduced."
"If we had some way to find the work most often consulted in the laboratory, it could well be Colowick and Kaplan's multi-volume series Methods in Enzymology...a great work."
"A series that has established itself as a definitive reference for biochemists."
