  • Provides a single all-inclusive resource for the theoretical and practical aspects of sample preparations for molecular biology, proteomics, and glycomics-related studies
  • Covers both the theoretical foundations and practical recipes for successful sample preparation processes and tasks dealing with difficult samples
  • Systematizes most of the tribal knowledge of the field, and sheds a further light on this process flow which is, for many researchers, the  most occasional reason for a bottleneck in a lab

About this book

The Sample Preparation Techniques for Environmental, Plant, and Animal Samples handbook is a collection of best practices, recipes and theoretical information aimed at anyone who works with any type of molecular biology, proteomics, or metabolomics research involving diffi cult and tough-to-process samples, and thus is exposed to the seemingly unbreakable bottleneck of sample preparation. Th is book is most useful to researchers preparing nucleic acids and proteins from environmental (e.g., soil, marine, and wastewater, feces) and tough microbiological (e.g., spores, yeasts, gram positive bacteria) samples, as well as solid tissue samples from plants and animals. This book is the first comprehensive piece of literature dealing with applications of bead beating technology and other types of mechanical homogenization sample preparation.

Reviews

“This monograph summarises and presents in an organised single text scattered relevant background information concerning sample preparation for a variety of molecular biology analyses, together with a number of protocols for successful treatment of difficult matrices. This book can be considered a useful practical guide for all those involved in sample preparation within the molecular biology practice, but it is also suitable for newcomers trying to obtain a general, but complete overview of the subject.” (Lourde Ramos, Chromatographia, Vol. 79, 2016)
