William Ward of Rutgers University who runs an excellent summer workshop on Green Fluorescent protein recommended this book; it is very good. Jim uses it as a reference for the theory behind protein separation techniques. It covers the principles behind protein precipitation, centrifugation, electrophoresis, and many types of chromatography. It has a section on scale up and a final chapter on the optimization of the process. It contains many useful graphs and diagrams.
