Isotope Labeling of Biomolecules: Applications, the latest in the Methods in Enzymology series, focuses on stable isotope labeling methods and applications for biomolecules. This practical guide to biomolecular labeling looks at new techniques that are becoming widely used.

Key Features

  • Continues the legacy of this premier serial with quality chapters authored by leaders in the field
  • Focuses on stable isotope labeling of biomolecules, which is important for structural studies of proteins and nucleic acids


Scientists interested in using stable isotope labeling for structural determination (i.e., SANS and NMR) and other applications (e.g., MS and HDX)
