There are many unanswered questions concerning the composition, structure, and dynamics of lateral microdomains (rafts) in biological membranes. Thus, sophisticated techniques have been used to study intact cell membranes as well as model systems composed of specific lipids and proteins thought to be in rafts. Using biochemical, biophysical, and computational methods, "Lipid Rafts" provides the most up-to-date information on the more
