Springer Nature eBook
Description / Table of Contents:
This third edition volume expands on the previous editions with new discussions on the latest techniques and developments in the field. The chapters in this book are organized into four parts, and cover topics such as optical tweezers; single-molecule fluorescence tools; atomic force microscopy; magnetic tweezers; applications to virus protein shells, unfolding of proteins, nucleic acids, motor proteins, in vivo and in vitro; and protocols to establish specific surface interactions and perform force calibration. 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. Cutting-edge and thorough, Single Molecule Analysis: Methods and Protocols, Third Edition is a valuable resource for all researchers who want to learn more about this exciting and still expanding field. Chapters 2, 7, 8, 9, 12, 18, and 19 are available open access under a Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 International License via link.springer.com. .
