Reviews

  • "This book will be a valuable resource both for beginners and for current practitioners. It should enable newcomers to set up a yeast laboratory and master basic manipulations."
    Praise for the Volume, --CAMBRIDGE SCIENTIFIC ABSTRACTS


    "Because this book covers so much in what is a technique-rich area, no researcher in the field will want to be without it... This is an exceptional book. While it is indeed a guide to many techniques and methods, in the final analysis, it is more than that. It is also a proclamation that yeast biology is now in the main stream."
    Praise for the Volume, --ASM NEWS
    "The Methods in Enzymology series represents the gold-standard."
    Praise for the Series, --NEUROSCIENCE
    "Incomparably useful."
    Praise for the Series, --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."
    Praise for the Series, --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."
    Praise for the Series, --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."
    Praise for the Series, --AMERICAN SOCIETY OF MICROBIOLOGY NEWS
    "If we had some way to find the work most often consulted in the laboratory, it could well be the multi-volume series Methods in Enzymology...a great work."
    Praise for the Series, --ENZYMOLOGIA
    "A series that has established itself as a definitive reference for biochemists."
    Praise for the Series, --JOURNAL OF CHROMATOGRAPHY
