Description:

Practical Skills in Biomolecular Science, is an indispensable book for undergraduate students in the life sciences. The book provides useful support at all stages of a degree course and underpins any practical course in biochemistry, biomedical science, genetics, immunologyand microbiology. It is also a valuable resource for teachers of biology in colleges adn secondary schools. Laboratory and field studies are essential components of undergraduate training in biomolecular science. Pratcical work must be fully understood and effectively presented, but many students under-perform because they lack basic laboratory skills. This book, now in itssecond edition, continues to provide students with easy-to-use guidance for laboratoryand field studies, but in addition it now covers broader transferable skills. As a result the new edition provides guidace and support over the entire range of a typical undergraduate course in biochemistry and biomedical science.
