Review quote

From the reviews:

"A compilation of protocols that addresses the ... analysis of membrane lipid structure to polymorphism, lipid domains and (macro-) molecular interactions. It is a timely addition to the series on a topic that begs attention. It is a valuable reference material for researchers in lipidology and practitioners whose work involves understanding membrane structure and function. ... a valuable compilation of biophysical methodologies employed in the study of membrane lipids that will no doubt be useful to anyone with an interest in membrane structure and function." (Dr Seetharaman Vaidyanathan, Molecular Biotechnology, March, 2008)
"The book deals with the membrane models and biophysical approaches used to study them. It is a compendium of various experimental and theoretical methods for investigating lipids, lipid aggregates, and, to some extent, membrane proteins. ... The book is not only a collection of methods, but a textbook that can be recommended for scientists and students with a deeper interest in lipid biochemistry and biophysics. ... it can be highly recommended." (Thomas Kolter, ChemBioChem, Issue 9, 2008)
