A comprehensive manual about the analysis of ancient and degraded DNA. Presents a clear schema of strategies, methods and applications (including examples), as well as a detailed protocol chapter which serves as a lab manual.
From the reviews: "This is a book that does what it says on the cover. Written by one of the leaders in the aDNA field, it covers both the basic techniques and the applications of aDNA in archaeological, anthropological and zoological studies. Susanne Hummel's writing is clear, she has chosen excellent diagrams to illustrate her text, and she includes many references to help the reader find their way into the primary literature. On the whole, she is to be congratulated for producing such a comprehensive guide ! ." (Terence A. Brown and Keri A. Brown, Human Genetics, Vol. 114 (1), 2003) "This book is a valuable introduction to the field of ancient DNA analysis and of direct relevance to the forensic community. Many of the problems and challenges that the author addresses are identical to those increasingly being faced by forensic biologists ! . In this respect the great value of the book is its extensive descriptions of the methodologies and strategies ! . I strongly recommend Ancient DNA Typing as a valuable reference source to anyone required to push current DNA testing methods ! ." (Peter R Gunn, Australian Journal of Forensic Science, Vol. 35, 2003)
