A primary text for courses that focus on basic laboratory methods in biotechnology, and an ancillary text for any biology course that includes a laboratory component that want to focus on biotechnology.
Unique in both content and approach, this text/reference provides a systematic introduction to basic laboratory methods from the perspective of the everyday work in the labs of the biotechnology/bioscience industry. Written at a level that is accessible to beginning college students with average math and science backgrounds. Provides the depth and detail useful to professional laboratory workers. It blends the background and theory provided by introductory chemistry texts with the practical concerns discussed in advanced lab manuals. It focuses on basic laboratory methods, the principles that underlie those methods, and the equipment that makes laboratory work possible.

"The authors have done an outstanding job of capturing the essential skills and applied theories of mathematics, physics, biology and chemistry that are pertinent to the training needs of workers in biotechnology. The information contained in these chapters represent a wealth of basic, practical knowledge that previously was not readily available in print, but more likely was acquired 'on the job'," -- Dr. Gail Baughman, MiraCosta College "The texts we have found for our biotechnology theory course are either too deep (molecular biology) or too shall (gee whiz). It is ironic that all three of the internships I have done in biotech companies have asked for the kinds of skills found in this text, but no other text seems to be available like it. I think that the book will be a best seller." -- Bill Thieman, Ventura College "The use of many worked out examples make this test especially strong as a reference for the technician." -- David B.
