Open Access Medical Books

Even though there is a huge number of books and publications utilizing different 
aspects of separation techniques like gel electrophoresis, it is still hard to find a freely 
accessible book that gathers a solid and concise understanding of gel separation 
principles together with its applications. The vision of this book is to provide an open 
source book series demonstrating the concept of gel bio-separation with some of its 
applications that meets the current throughput screening demands of scientists and 
researchers. The book “Gel Electrophoresis – Principles and Basics” begins with an 
introductory chapter that describes the principles of well-known gel separation 
approaches using agarose and polyacrylamide matrices, together with snapshot
applications of this analytical technique. It is followed by wide-ranged practical 
research chapters utilizing widely popular techniques such as 2DE, DGGE, and PFGE, 
written by leading experts worldwide. It is safe to to say that the scope of information 
contained in this book is large and rich enough to be covered in a book series.
Gel electrophoresis is aimed mainly at those interested in different separation techniques, 
particularly biochemists, biologists, pharmacists, advanced graduate students and 
postgraduate researchers.
Finally, I am grateful to Ms Martina Durovic (publishing process manager) and all the 
experts who participated in this book and shared their valuable experience. Indeed, 
without their participation, this book wouldn’t have come to light.
