EXPERIMENTS IN BIOCHEMISTRY: A HANDS-ON APPROACH, Second Edition features a variety of hands-on, classroom tested experiments that are proven to work and can be completed in a normal lab period. The manual's stand-alone experiments are effective in courses meeting only once a week, giving students a broad overview of the subject matter. A more comprehensive set of experiments is also available and allows students to delve further into each of the topics presented. The Second Edition also features new and revised experiments, including a new experiment that involves cloning the barracuda LDH gene! Students and professors will also find expanded problem sets in this edition. Tip boxes, located throughout the text, provide pointers to students on how to perform the experiment at hand, while Essential Information boxes highlight pertinent information that will help the student complete the experiment. The second edition continues to include references and further readings at the end of each chapter.

The experiments have been classroom rested through multiple semesters. They are proven to work and can be completed in a normal lab period. Alternate versions of experiments allow for easy use in labs which meet once a week or multiple times a week. The manual also makes it easy for students to use due to six "Tip" boxes located throughout the text, which give pointers on how to perform the labs and six "Essential Information" boxes that highlight pertinent information. There are also references and further reading sections located at the end of each chapter.

Bernard Rosner's FUNDAMENTALS OF BIOSTATISTICS is a practical introduction to the methods, techniques, and computation of statistics with human subjects. It prepares students for their future courses and careers by introducing the statistical methods most often used in medical literature. Rosner minimizes the amount of mathematical formulation (algebra-based) while still giving complete explanations of all the important concepts. As in previous editions, a major strength of this book is that every new concept is developed systematically through completely worked out examples from current medical research problems.
