Isoelectric focusing (IEF) is a high-resolution, stand-alone technique that can be used as an analytical method or tool for protein purification. The only current book on the market, the Handbook of Isoelectric Focusing and Proteomics is the ideal 'one-stop' source for germane information in this discipline. This highly practical book also contains chapters on alternative methods that may pave the way in the search for efficient techniques for fractionating and purifying proteins. Complete with the history of IEF focusing to authors' insights and practical tips, this book is a must for anyone working in proteomics.
