I use this book at least weekly, and often more frequently than that. Greg Hermanson has written the best and most useful reference in the area of bioconjugation that I have found. His discussion of the chemistry is well-researched, clearly presented, accurate, and easy to understand. His laboratory protocols are excellent in themselves and easy to adapt to virtually any need. The references alone are almost worth the price of the book. Overall, if you are involved in bioconjugation, this book is your MUST HAVE reference. I just wish this book was available as an e-book through Barnes and Noble.

This second edition covers all reagents for chemical syntheses and more than 1800 references, constituting a comprehensive source for original designs of many varieties of bioconjugates. Extensive interactions between vital function groups and biological molecules are exceptionally complicated but are well deciphered in Parts II and III and thereafter are capable generating infinite novel entities to fulfill unmet therapeutic applications by assorted professionals. Well-schemed chemical reactions followed by protocols across all subjects are neat and intuitive, presenting two exceptional values for readers: generating inspiration and hands-on modus operandi. This book would definitely stimulate people who plan or already pursue careers in medical, biosensor, pharmaceutics, bioengineering, diagnostics, biochemistry, and microbiological industries.
