Second Edition provides 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 duplication of results.
"International praise for the first edition. . . . . .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
". . .a gold mine of information. "
". . .an extremely useful addition to the laboratories (in addition to libraries) of those who are actually engaged in the use of mass spectrometry in the analysis of biological compounds. "
". . .warmly recommended. . .a stimulating reference text. . .It deserves to be on both laboratory and personal bookshelves! "
---Trends in Analytical Chemistry
". . .an invaluable practical manual. "
