Calorimetry, the latest volume in the Methods in Enzymology series continues the legacy of this premier serial with quality chapters authored by leaders in the field. Calorimetry is a highly technical experiment and it is easy for new practioners to get fooled into interpreting artifacts as real experimental results.  This volume will guide readers to get the most out of their precious biological samples and includes topics on specific protocols for the types of studies being conducted as well as tips to improve the data collection. Most importantly, the chapters will also help to identify pitfalls that need to be avoided to ensure that the highest quality results are obtained.

Key Features

  • Contains timely contributions from recognized experts in this  rapidly changing field
  • Provides specific protocols and tips to improve data collection and ensure the highest quality results are obtained
  • Covers research methods in calorimetry, and includes sections on topics such as differential scanning calorimetry of membrane and soluble proteins in detergents


Biochemists, biophysicists, molecular biologists, analytical chemists, and physiologists.

About the Serial Volume Editor

Andrew Feig

Andrew Feig
Prof. Andrew Feig joined the WSU faculty in the Department of Chemistry in 2006. He is a biochemist who oversees a laboratory that studies bacterial gene regulation by small non-coding RNAs and the biochemistry, chemical biology, and biophysics of Clostridium difficile toxins A & B. He has worked extensively on structural rearrangements of RNA and RNA protein interactions with an emphasis on the biochemistry and biophysics of those processes. He has a long-standing interested in heat capacity changes associated with these structural transitions and their impact on the regulation of biological processes.

Professor Feig is a 2002 Cottrell Scholar, was Recipient of the WSU Career Development Chair (08/09), the CLAS Teaching Award (2012) and the WSU President’s Award for Excellence in Teaching (2013). In 2015 he was named PCSUM Michigan Distinguished Professor of the Year. Professor Feig earned his B.S. in Chemistry from Yale University (1990) and his Ph.D. in Chemistry from MIT (1995) working with Professor Stephen J. Lippard. He worked as a post-doctoral fellow at University of Colorado, Boulder (1995-1999) in the laboratory of Olke C. Uhlenbeck.
