At the Benchis the unique and hugely successful handbook for living and working in the laboratory, an essential aid to understanding basic lab techniques and how research groups work at a human level. In this newly revised edition, chapters have been rewritten to accommodate the impact of computer technology and the Internet, not only on the acquisition and analysis of data, but also on its organization and presentation. Alternatives to the use of radiation have been expanded, and figures and illustrations have been redrawn to reflect changes in laboratory equipment and procedures.

This is a 'everything you wanted to know but never dared to ask' kind of book, for molecular biology laboratories. It was particularly useful for me, and it may be a good guide for students facing for the first time lab work. Read full review
