About this Textbook

Incorporating dramatic recent advances, this textbook presents a fresh and timely introduction to modern biophysical methods. An array of new, faster and structurally higher-resolvingpower biophysical methods now enables scientists to examine the examination of the mysteries of life at a molecular level. So students and researchers alike need to know the technological details behind the latest methods so they can choose appropriate tools and make optimal use of them. This innovative text surveys and explains the ten key biophysical methods, including those related to biophysical nanotechnology, scanning probe microscopy, X-ray crystallography, ion mobility spectrometry, mass spectrometry, and proteomics. Containing much information previously unavailable in tutorial form, Methods in Modern Biophysics employs worked examples and more than 260 illustrations to fully detail the techniques and their underlying mechanisms. The book was written for advanced undergraduate and graduate students, postdocs, researchers, lecturers and professors in biophysics, biochemistry, general biology and related fields.

Reviews

From J. Breckow, F. Cemic in "Radiation and Environmental Biophysics", Vol. 43, 2004 pp. 65-66:

"... This book is well suited for both undergraduate and graduate students of physics and biology, biotechnology and related faculties, as it is most adept for experts not being mainly involved in biophysical methodology. The reader will get a condensed and highly up-to-date presentation of a variety of modern molecular methods that are widespread and/or of relevance for future developments. The extensive reference list is a good starting point for further reading. The style, wording and graphical illustrations in the textbook are adequate and make it recommendable for the intended readership."

"(…) Nölting’s textbook is an excellent presentation of the most relevant and widespread experimental techniques in modern biophysics. (…) Nölting succeeds in achieving an appropriate balance of a basic and yet coherent description while neglecting complexity where ever possible. (…) This book is well suited for both undergraduate and graduate students of physics and biology, biotechnology and related faculties."

"(…) Summing Up: Recommended. Upper-division undergraduates through professionals."
K.L. Schick, emeritus, Union College, NY
Journal: Choice, May 2004

"(...) It is best suited as a textbook for both undergraduate and graduate students for its richness in graphics and comprehensiveness of the text, but will certainly be adored also by researchers and lecturers. (...) The book guides with ease the reader through its eleven chapters giving a near complete picture of current biophysical techniques...."
