This bench-top manual provides help for beginners through to experienced scientists on setting up bilayer experiments. Cell membranes consist of lipid bilayers in which are contained many other entities (eg - proteins forming ion charmels) that regulate cellular processes. Scientists are guided through the know-how on making simple artificial lipid-protein systems in such bilayers. Technical tips on all the pitfalls and how to build your own set-up for experimental work round off the book.
