"...highly recommended, both as an essential text for newcomers to the field and as a valuable, integrated and up-to-date reference source for anybody interested in state-of-the-art research in mass spectrometry in biology, biochemistry and medicine."
International Journal of Mass Spectrometry and Ion Processes

"...warmly recommended - a stimulating reference text...It deserves to be on both laboratory and personal bookshelves!"
Trends in Analytical Chemistry

This timely Second Edition of an established resource covers the huge expansion of information that has taken place since the publication of the first edition€providing up-to-the-minute discussions on the application of mass spectrometry to the biological sciences.

Shows how and why experiments are performed and furnishes details to facilitate the duplication of results! Completely rewritten and enlarged by internationally recognized scientists from industry and academia, Mass Spectrometry of Biological Materials, Second Edition:

  • reviews the ionization methods and instrumentation used in the analysis of biological materials
  • introduces new instrumental technology that can solve fundamental problems in biology
  • demonstrates techniques for isolating and identifying target molecules in complex mixtures that are often present in only trace amounts
  • describes methods for characterizing proteins at very low levels of sample material
  • analyzes noncovalent interactions and the use of hydrogen/deuterium exchange for tertiary structure determination
  • explains the characterization of oligonucleotides and DNA
  • supplies in-depth coverage of screening protein databases using data generated by mass spectrometry and more!

Containing over 800 bibliographic citations and illustrations, Mass Spectrometry of Biological Materials, Second Edition is a useful guide for mass spectrometrists; analytical, medicinal, and protein chemists and biochemists; biotechnologists; enzymologists; molecular biologists; agricultural scientists; and graduate-level and continuing-education students in these disciplines.
