About this book


This book provides a timely overview of analytical tools and methodological approaches for studying membrane lipids. It outlines the ground-breaking advances that have been made over the last two decades in high-throughput lipidomics, and in studying lipid-protein interactions, signalling pathways and the regulation of lipid metabolism.

This user-friendly laboratory handbook is an ideal companion for membrane biologists, researchers, students, and clinicians alike. It is also well suited for teaching biochemistry, microbiology and biotechnology courses, making it a must-have for everyone whose work involves lipid research.
