Introduction to Experimental Biophysics free pdf

A practical companion for physical scientists investigating wet laboratory experiments and biological research areas, this book gives a clear understanding of what is experimentally feasible. Introducing basic terminology and concepts, the text begins with simple, fundamental methods and builds gradually to more advanced techniques. Organized into three main sections addressing genes, proteins, and expression systems, this book employs a straight-forward structure allowing readers to follow the process involved in the production of nucleic acids and proteins and the different levels of purification required for each type of analysis.

About Jay Nadeau

Jay L. Nadeau is an associate professor of biomedical engineering and physics at McGill University (2004--present). Her research interests include nanoparticles, fluorescence imaging, and development of instrumentation for the detection of life elsewhere in the solar system. She has published over 50 papers on topics ranging from theoretical condensed matter physics to experimental neurobiology to the development of anticancer drugs and, in the process, has used almost every technique described in this book. Her work has been featured in New Scientist, Highlights in Chemical Biology, Radio Canada's Les Annees Lumiere, Le Guide des Tendances, and in educational displays in schools and museums. Her research group features chemists, microbiologists, roboticists, physicists, and physician-scientists, all learning from each other and hoping to speak each other's language. A believer in bringing biology to physicists as well as physics to biologists, she has created two graduate-level courses: methods in molecular biology for physical scientists and mathematical cellular physiology. She also teaches pharmacology in the medical school and was one of the pioneers in the establishment of multiple mini-interviews for medical school admission. She has an adjunct position with The Jackson Laboratory in Bar Harbor, Maine, and collaborators in industry and academia in the United States, Europe, Australia, and Japan. She has given several dozen invited talks at meetings of the American Chemical Society, American Geophysical Union, the International Society for Optics and Photonics (SPIE), the Committee on Space Research, and many others. Before McGill, she was a member of the Jet Propulsion Laboratory's Center for Life Detection, and previous to that a Burroughs-Wellcome postdoctoral scholar in the laboratory of Henry A. Lester at Caltech. She received her PhD in physics from the University of Minnesota in 1996.
