I would appreciate any suggestion regarding self-studying experimental techniques used in biology for a theoretical scientist (candidate).
Maybe I should be more specific. I'm a biology major, but took as little experimental courses as possible, and I didn't paid much attention to those I took. (shame on me, right). Then I got a MS in applied math. When I revisit my molecular biology/genetics and biochemistry textbooks, I realized that they are mostly descriptive.
An experiment/technique oriented textbook would be very helpful for me, especially if it will also provide an overview of the methods.
My purpose is not the make up for the lost undergrad years, change my research orientation or master experimental skills. I'm aware that this is not achievable by reading some texts. My sole purpose is to not get lost on theory/experiment interface. When someone asks how something could be proven experimentally, I want to know what options are there in the field.
