"The methods presented have been carefully chosen to present those most relevant to current applications of biophysical approaches in biological research... this book is meant to serve as a textbook and initial reference source for students as well as advanced researchers learning biophysical methods. The descriptions are well written and concise, with enough detail to enhance interest... This book would serve not only as a good resource, but because it is well written at an introductory level, it would also serve as an excellent textbook for students in research environments with a lesser focus on biophysical approaches... This very attractive monograph is well written... The goal of this monograph is a very good one, and the organization has been very well thought out. Although... this one is highly recommended for student and advanced researchers in less biophysical environments, mainly because of the quality of writing, topics covered, organization, and the detailed information."
