by Bengt Nölting

Incorporating dramatic recent advances, "Methods in Modern Biophysics" presents a fresh and timely introduction to modern biophysical methods. 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.

I have long looked for a book that gave me a summary of existing modern technologies for biophysical studies. This book offers a comprehensive overview of a wide variety of methods ranging from traditional methods such as X-ray to current state of art techniques such as microarrays. The methods are clearly described by many schematic figures. It is easy to read. The book also provides a comprehensive list of references for further details. It is highly recommended for anyone working in biophysics.
If you are looking for a spectacular, brand new textbook for an introductory or advanced course in biophysics, this book is highly recommended. I found that the book with its unique scope covers all the essential subjects of biophysics methods needed for the biophysics/biochemistry/medical student. A few years ago I was looking for all those methods in one book - but there was none available. I had to extract the information from 5 different books which was quite time consuming. So this book really fills a gap. Also, compared to other biophysics books it has far more graphics and contains a large amount of essential, previously unpublished information. The book is pleasant reading from beginning to the end and will give you a comprehensive picture of biophysics in a very educative fashion. In my opinion there is no cheaper way of education than reading a good book like this one.
This is a fantastic textbook on biophysics methods and techniques. I found it particularly useful for those who are theoreticians and computer modelers. As a theoretical biophysicist, I work on protein folding, protein structure prediction and ligand-receptor binding studies, and I was constantly looking for a book which contains all important and up-to-date experimental methods and techniques to better understand our experimental colleagues' work. Now I found it! If you are also looking for a book for introductory as well as advanced topics in biophysics methods, this book might be the one you are looking for. It essentially covers all the new and important subjects of this field. I found the chapters about proteomics, ion mobility spectrometry, and mass spectrometry, particularly interesting. I will try to include some of the material in the course "Biophysical Chemistry"(a graduate level course) that I am co-teaching, and I will strongly recommend this book to those who are interested in biophysics.
This book presents a review of various biophysical methods, most of them developed or significantly revised in recent years, for the use of studying biomolecules. The author illustrates each technique with lots of figures (makes me to remember the old phrase "one figure is worth more than thousand words") and also provides a good bibliography for each technique. The book also assembles the information that is hard to find from a single source. I enjoyed reading the book and recommend it for beginners as well as advanced users.
Read this book before you start PhD program! Wish I have had this book earlier. Inspires you to aim higher than you might have otherwise attempted.
I highly evaluate this book as an important contribution to biophysics. There are many students interested in this book.
This is an outstanding overview of the entire field of biophysics methods. The textbook presents the most important biophysics topics including fascinating biophysical nanotechnology and proteomics methods. The author uses lots of figures and does a marvelous job describing complex issues in fairly easy to comprehend terms. It is fun to read this book.
The book presents a lot of novel methods, in particular those related to biophysical nanotechnology and microwave technologies, that cannot be found in other textbooks.
