Introduction

Advances in biomedical research have had a profound effect on human health outcomes over the last century. Biophysical, biochemical and cellular techniques are now the backbone of modern biomedical research. Understanding these laboratory techniques is a prerequisite for investigating the processes responsible for human diseases and discovering new treatment methods.

Cutting Edge Techniques in Biophysics, Biochemistry and Cell Biology: From Principle to Applications

Provides information about basic and advanced analytical techniques applied in specific areas of life science and biomedical research.

Key Features:

- Book chapters present a broad overview of sophisticated analytical techniques used in biophysics, biochemistry and cell biology.

- Techniques covered include in vitro cell culture techniques, flow cytometry, real time PCR, X-ray crystallography, RNA sequencing

- Information about industrial and biomedical applications of techniques, (drug screening, disease models, functional assays, disease diagnosis, gene expression analysis and protein structure determination) is included.

The book is an excellent introduction for students (as a textbook) and researchers (as a reference work). The information it presents will prepare readers to understand and develop research methods in life science laboratories for different projects and activities.

Preface

This ebook titled ‘Cutting Edge Techniques in Biophysics, Biochemistry and Cell Biology: From Principle to Applications’ provides principles of basic and analytical techniques in biophysics, biochemistry and cell biology and their potential applications in biomedical research. The volume covers the basics of in-vitro cell culture techniques, such as flow cytometry including FACS, Real time PCR based disease diagnosis as well as gene expression analysis, X ray crystallography, RNA sequencing and their various biomedical applications, including drug screening, disease model, functional assays, disease diagnosis, gene expression analysis, and protein structure determination. This is a valuable resource for biomedical students, cellular and molecular biologists who want to be an eminent biomedical researcher.

We strongly believe that this book is a reader’s delight providing a comprehensive understanding on cell biology, macromolecular structure, in silico studies and functioning. It is an excellent introduction for students towards cell biology and biophysics that clearly help them to develop a wider perspective of the field. The idea to encompass knowledge covering from what is known to what is unknown in the writings from the experts in the field results in a concerted effort to justify the various topics. We sincerely hope our efforts will be embraced by students with appreciation and enthusiasm for learning.
