About the Book
Binding and Kinetics for Molecular Biologists offers a practical guide to the principles of quantitative analysis in biological experiments. The material is primarily aimed at working molecular biologists, but the scope and clarity of presentation make it equally suitable as an introduction for students. Topics covered range from the basics, such as measuring the concentrations of macromolecules, to considerations of binding constants and the kinetics of molecular interactions. The book ends with a thorough consideration of data analysis.
Examples from the literature, and others newly created for the book, are used throughout to demonstrate how the principles described relate to real experimental models. Complimenting the material presented in the book is a collection of Web-based simulations, available at this site, that can be manipulated to visualize important concepts presented in the chapters. They afford a better understanding of binding and rate curves and fitting data.
