The aim of this laboratory guide is to collect important methods in cell biology. Divided into 15 sections, it starts with techniques for culturing and analyzing whole cells, progresses through sections on cell fractionation, microscopy, generation of antibodies, introduction of molecules into living cells, to end with methods for the analysis of proteins. Protocols are provided as easy-to-follow recipes and the pitfalls of each technique are described at the end of each article.
