I'm a 5th-year PhD student in chemical biology. I've mostly been doing computational work, so my bench skills are rusty. To help me, I'd like a handbook of common techniques -- transformations, ELISA, protein purification, DNA extraction, SDS-PAGE, column chromatography, etc. I'd especially like a collection of recipes for buffers, etc.

I can find some protocols, but it's hard to find ones covering the more basic methods, and I'd like something cohesive. And there's something satisfying about an actual book.

I found these (and browsed through them in an HHMI library once):

But they're pretty out of date! Most of the techniques are still valid, but I know many have been superseded. There are still a lot of radioligand assays (which are now uncommon in most labs).

So, can anyone recommend a book that could help someone relearn basic techniques?

My experience is that techniques are almost most often taught by hands-on, one-on-one training -- you find someone who knows the technique and ask them to show you, but COVID-19 distancing protocols make that nearly impossible. (The good news is that I often have the lab to myself and an underused supply of chemical stocks and reagents.)

    $\begingroup$ Not a book recommendation but you should check out : protocols.io As someone with a computational background, I'm not the happiest about the about the way they write the protocols but they are definitely legit. $\endgroup$ – rkrishnasanka Mar 15 at 21:50

I know you are asking for books, but for up-to-date basic overview of how some methods work - I would try websites or YouTube instead of textbooks...

One good website is BiteSizeBio. They have their own section for 'how to articles' and educational webinars. Otherwise I would also try YouTube. If you search in YouTube for basic techniques like 'how does the ELISA method work?' or 'principles behind SDS-PAGE' then you will find a lot of instructional movies. There is also the 'the protein man's blog' for purification of proteins, some analysis but also some DNA things.

  • $\begingroup$ An additional recommendation would be jove.com , the journal for visualized experiments. Explains different experiments and methods through videos. $\endgroup$ – tsttst Feb 15 at 23:40

Some protocols are not going out of style anytime soon, such as:

Frederick M. Ausubel, Roger Brent, Robert E. Kingston, David D. Moore, J. G. Seidman, John A. Smith, Kevin Struhl (2002) Short Protocols in Molecular Biology. Wiley, 1512pp. Check the Appendix sections for buffer formulations, etc. My copy is torn into pieces due to heavy use.

If you need the up-to-date form, then I recommend the subscription to Wiley's Current Protocols in Molecular Biology.


The extremely old-school answer here would be Maniatis' Molecular Cloning. They put out a new edition every decade or so, there is one from 2012 that is updated.

To get an idea of the book's impact in molecular biology, see this review from their website:

“In every kitchen there is at least one indispensable cookbook...Molecular Cloning: A Laboratory Manual fills the same niche in the laboratory (with) information to help both the inexperienced and the advanced user. (It) has once again established its primacy as the molecular laboratory manual and is likely to be found on lab benches...around the world.” ——Trends in Neurosciences

Likely there are more streamlined books out there at this point (this book runs at 3 volumes), but it's hard to see how to dispense with Maniatis.

It includes recipes for buffers etc. (see end of listing below). It is a little lighter on protein techniques, though, so I don't think you will find e.g. ELISA in there, though you will definitely find SDS-PAGE.

Here is a current chapter/protocol heading (you can scroll through the monospaced text). I had to delete a bunch of subheadings to make it fit under 30K characters:
