Spectroscopy for the Biological Sciences


Spectroscopy for the Biological Sciences by Gordon G. Hammes

An introduction to the physical principles of spectroscopy and their applications to the biological sciences Advances in such fields as proteomics and genomics place new demands on students and professionals to be able to apply quantitative concepts to the biological phenomena that they are studying. Spectroscopy for the Biological Sciences provides students and professionals with a working knowledge of the physical chemical aspects of spectroscopy, along with their applications to important biological problems. Designed as a companion to Professor Hammes's Thermodynamics and Kinetics for the Biological Sciences, this approachable yet thorough text covers the basic principles of spectroscopy, including: ? Fundamentals of spectroscopy ? Electronic spectra ? Circular dichroism and optical rotary dispersion ? Vibration in macromolecules (IR, Raman, etc.) ? Magnetic resonance ? X-ray crystallography ? Mass spectrometry With a minimum of mathematics and a strong focus on applications to biology, this book will prepare current and future professionals to better understand the quantitative interpretation of biological phenomena and to utilize these tools in their work.


...everything about this book seems to be right...If you are a student or researcher in the biological sciences who needs a brief refresher in biological spectroscopy, this is the book you must read. ( Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, March/April 2006)

...a valuable overview of the spectroscopy techniques commonly encountered in biological research

(The Quarterly Review of Biology, March 2006)

...a great introduction to the world of spectroscopic methods. (Applied Spectroscopy, October 2005)

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.

Jen Rainbow

I love that Lovereading handpicks very special debut reads.
