This handbook describes experimental techniques to monitor and manipulate individual biomolecules, including fluorescence detection, atomic force microscopy, and optical and magnetic trapping. It includes single-molecule studies of physical properties of biomolecules such as folding, polymer physics of protein and DNA, enzymology and biochemistry, single molecules in the membrane, and single-molecule techniques in living cells.

Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"The Handbook of Single-Molecule Biophysics, edited by Hinterdorfer (Johannes Kepler Univ. of Linz, Austria) and van Oijen (Harvard Medical School), contains 21 chapters that address various aspects of techniques used to investigate single-molecule biophysics. The chapters, many authored by leading experts in their respective fields, cover specialized biophysical techniques, their applications, background into the technical design, and practical aspects of implementing these approaches. . Summing Up: Recommended. Graduate students, researchers, faculty, and professionals." (C. A. Reinhart-King, Choice, Vol. 47 (10), June, 2010)
