Contents Notes
Numbers and measurements in the lab -- Chemistry by the numbers -- Equipment for measuring, counting, and otherwise quantifying -- Making solutions -- DNA and RNA -- Proteins -- Statistics and reports : collecting, interpreting, and presenting numerical data. Adams (Forsyth Institute, Boston) provides a practical text for math-averse practicing and student biologists, useful as a reference book and a source of quick information for numerical tasks while working in the lab. Coverage includes basics about numbers and generic types of measurements, numbers used in the chemistry underlying biology, calibration and correct use of lab equipment, methods and short cuts for making solutions, methods used in molecular biology, an introduction to statistics and reports and the communication of numerical data, and reference tables and equations.
