This insightful overview by one of the most respected names in protein research discusses a broad array of the aspects involved with protein purification, including historical background, determining the purpose for purifying a particular protein, and actual methods and recommendations for purification procedures. Also covered are methods of analysis and detection, and techniques for characterizing a purified protein. Finally, a useful discussion of the equipment needed in a protein purification lab is provided.
