Overview

This is the first book to cover the history, structure, and application of atomic force microscopy in cell biology. Presented in the clear, well-illustrated style of the Methods in Cell Biology series, it introduces the AFM to its readers and enables them to tap the power and scope of this technology to further their own research. A practical laboratory guide for use of the atomic force and photonic force microscopes, it provides updated technology and methods in force spectroscopy. It is also a comprehensive and easy-to-follow practical laboratory guide for the use of the AFM and PFM in biological research.

Editorial Reviews

Prepared under the auspices of the American Society for Cell Biology, this text encompasses the emergence in the past decade and applications of the atomic force microscope (AFM) in cell biology research. Jena (physiology and pharmacology, Wayne State U. School of Medicine, Detroit) and Hörber (European Molecular Biology Laboratory, Heidelberg) introduce 17 chapters contributed by international experts in the field to provide working knowledge of AFM developments, techniques, imaging limitations, study results, and potential in nanotechnology in combination with other new tools. Applications include study of the properties of living cells and single DNA molecules. A section of color plates concludes the volume. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
