    I know of two books that are excellent for theory and practice of
protein purification, if this is what you mean.

(1)  Robert Scopes _Protein Purification_.  I have the second edition and
don't know if there is a third edition.  It is publised by Springer-Verlag
(2)  Murray Deutscher (ed) _Guide to protein purification_.  This is from
the Methods in Enzymology series and is published by Academic Press.

    If anyone knows of any other texts, I would also be interested in
knowing about them.
