Book Description

17 Aug 2006 0198529422 978-0198529422
Analytical measurements at the single molecule level under ambient conditions have become almost routine in the past few years. The application of this technology to fundamental studies of heterogeneity in biomolecular structure and dynamics, chemical and biological reaction kinetics and photophysics provides a rich playground for molecular scientists. The potential use of single molecule detection for nanotechnology and quantum information processing is a new and almost unexplored area. This handbook is intended for those interested in a practical introduction to single molecule investigations using fluorescence techniques and places special emphasis on the practicalities of achieving single molecule resolution, analysing the resulting data and exploration of the applications in biophysics. It is ideal for graduate research students and others embarking on work in this exciting field.

Product Description


An excellent book, ... the first text I know of that brings relevant information together in a consistent style. It could end up a classic in the field. (Clive Bagshaw, University of Leicester)

About the Author

Dr Chris Gell School of Physics and Astronomy E C Stoner Building University of Leeds Leeds LS2 9JT Chris Gell obtained his MPhys. in Physics with Electronics and Instrumentation in 1998 from the University of Leeds. He then obtained his PhD in 2001 from the same institution. During his PhD he designed and constructed single molecule fluorescence spectroscopy instrumentation in Leeds and applied this to simple studies of protein folding. After his PhD he was appointed Laser Facilities Manager for the Institute of Molecular Biophysics in Leeds. In this ongoing position Chris has designed and constructed several additional types of single molecule instrumentation and helped to lead the varied single molecule fluorescence studies that are continuing in Leeds. In addition Chris is responsible for overseeing, maintaining and having intellectual input in a variety of other techniques and instruments in the institute, including: time-resolved and steady state luminescence spectroscopies.

Prof. Alastair Smith School of Physics and Astronomy E C Stoner Building University of Leeds Leeds LS2 9JT Alastair holds the Chair of Molecular Biophysics and is Director of the Institute of Molecular Biophysics at the University of Leeds. His undergraduate degree in Physics and PhD in the nonlinear optical properties of liquid crystals were awarded by the University of Manchester. Following a period of work in the Chemistry Department at the University of Pennsylvania, he was appointed as Lecturer in Physics at the University of Leeds in 1995. Since then his work has focused on the development of enabling technologies for structural molecular biology. He collaborates extensively with Life Scientists in the UK and internationally with a main research focus on protein folding and biological self-assembly.

Dr David Brockwell School of Biochemistry and Microbiology University of Leeds Leeds LS2 9JT David obtained his B.Sc. in Pharmacy from the University of Manchester in 1992 and registered as a Pharmacist after a qualification year at St. Bartholomew's Hospital, London in 1993. He then returned to Manchester and obtained his Ph.D in 1997. After six years post-doctoral work in the School of Biochemistry and Microbiology at Leeds, he was appointed to the academic staff of the same department jointly as part of the EPSRC funded Doctoral Training Centre and the newly created Institute of Molecular Biophysics. His main of area of research involves the use of single molecule techniques to characterise the mechanical properties of proteins and their complexes and the relation between these fundamental aspects of protein structure, stability and dynamics to the control of biological activity and homeostasis in vivo.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Book! 6 Jan 2007
By BK - Published on Amazon.com
I recently got this book for my post-doctoral studies and I have to say, its great. A good mix of the theoretical and practical aspects of single-molecule experimentation. I really appreciate the level of detail that Smith and Co. put into this book. Bring on the single molecules!
