At the Bench - A Laboratory Navigator - updated edition
Publisher:Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory Press
This excellent book should be given by P.I.'s to their new graduate students or should be purchased by new graduates beginning an R and D career. It helps to orient the new researcher to what is not important in the lab (there is no dress code) and what is (attend every lab meeting and keep your lab notebook up to date). It contains tips on how to organize your labbench ("its setup and maintenance are integral to the reproducibility of your experiments) and how to design an experiment. It also has some nuts and bolts instruction on how to make buffers, maintain bacteria stocks and cell lines, and how to dispose of wastes.
