"4 Stars - These 4 volumes provide a modern, near encyclopedic review of cell biology protocols."
--Gregory Jay Bix, Thomas Jefferson University in DOODY'S (May 2006)
Praise for the Previous Edition:
"The terms bible and encyclopedic collection are often used of scientific works aspiring to present to the scientific community all the branches of a discipline. Often these terms are misleading! Here they are paradigmatic... could not be more accurate and user-friendly... The book is not only helpful for writing papers, but invaluable for bench work... a masterpiece among scientific publications."
"This compendium is a welcome addition to the cell biology laboratory, assembling a wide array of techniques of value to cell biologists...Contributions are by recognized experts in their fields, in some cases the originator of the technique or procedure.
