Biophysical Electron Microscopy : Basic Concepts and Modern Techniques
This book is an essential text for all biologists, biophysicists, and medical doctors who apply techniques of electron microscopy. Biologists and physicists have written the book in close collaboration so as to describe and explain these techniques in an accessible manner to a wide audience. This volume will have the double effect of encouraging biologists to experiment with techniques they have not yet tried and of inviting physicists to turn their skills to some of the unsolved problems of the biological specimen.
