"Methods in Enzymology is a highly respected, widely available, and practical series of volumes that contains detailed protocols and descriptions of biochemical and biophysical techniques...They have compiled fifty-three excellent chapters on the broad subject of biophotonics, which were written by internationally renowned scientists who work in twelve countries...The editors of Biophotonics are to be congratulated for having made a judicious selection of both the topics to be covered and also the quality of the authors they have selected to present these topics...I suggest that Biophotonics would be extremely useful to any researcher who is working in this expanding field. Undergraduate students beginning their research projects, graduate students, scientists, engineers, and clinicians involved with biophotonics would comprise the intended audience...I highly recommend Biophotonics as a very reliable and useful reference work...The very high quality illustrations are well documented with legends and annotations...The production quality of these volumes is very high…In summary, the two-volume set of Biophotnics constitutes an extensive set of protocols, techniques, instruments, and methods of analysis that constitute that state-of-the art. The books are extremely well organized, clearly written, profusely illustrated, and thoroughly documented. The editors and the diverse group of authors have succeeded in their aims and have produced a highly useful and recommended set of books." - Journal of Biomedical Optics (2005) PRAISE FOR THE SERIES "The Methods in Enzymology series represents the gold-standard." -NEUROSCIENCE "Incomparably useful." —ANALYTICAL BIOCHEMISTRY "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." -BIO/TECHNOLOGY "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." —CHEMISTRY IN INDUSTRY "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." —AMERICAN SOCIETY OF MICROBIOLOGY NEWS "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." —ENZYMOLOGIA "A series that has established itself as a definitive reference for biochemists." —JOURNAL OF CHROMATOGRAPHY
