About this book


This volume provides methods on microcalorimetry approaches to investigate complex biological molecular systems. Chapters guide readers through Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC), Isothermal Titration Calorimetry (ITC), and advanced data processing. Written in the highly successful Methods in Molecular Biology series format, chapters include introductions to their respective topics, lists of the necessary materials and reagents, step-by-step, readily reproducible laboratory protocols, and tips on troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls.

Authoritative and practical, Microcalorimetry of Biological Molecules: Methods and Protocols aims to ensure successful results in the further study of this vital field.
