@qu:The 'Methods in Enzymology' series represents the gold-standard. @source:--NEUROSCIENCE @qu:Incomparably useful. @source:--ANALYTICAL BIOCHEMISTRY @qu: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. @source:--BIO/TECHNOLOGY @qu: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. @source:--CHEMISTRY IN INDUSTRY @qu: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. @source:--AMERICAN SOCIETY OF MICROBIOLOGY NEWS @qu:If we had some way to find the work most often consulted in the laboratory, it could well be Colowick and Kaplans multivolume series Methods in Enzymology...a great work. @source:--ENZYMOLOGIA @qu:A series that has established itself as a definitive reference for biochemists. @source:--JOURNAL OF CHROMATOGRAPHY
