About the author:
Andreas Hofmann is the Structural Chemistry Program Leader at Griffith University's Eskitis Institute in Brisbane, Australia, and holds a Senior Honorary Research Fellow at the Faculty of Veterinary and Agricultural Sciences at the University of Melbourne. His research focuses on the structure and function of proteins in infectious and neurodegenerative diseases with a special interest in protein crystallography and biophysical methods. Among other prizes, he won the EULAR Young Investigator Award in 2004, and holds a Fellowship by the Higher Education Academy (UK).

Methods in Structural Chemistry

A Lab Manual

Authored by Andreas Hofmann
Edition: 3

This Lab Manual provides the experimental procedures as well as the fundamental background for methods used in a structural biochemistry laboratory. It is a collection of methods and procedures routinely used in our laboratory and subject to annual additions. This Manual is an integral part of our laboratory and as such constitutes a write-up of standard operating procedures for reference and training purposes, as well as Health & Safety and Good Laboratory Practice.
