About this book

An essential core collection of the latest molecular and genetic techniques for cloning, subcloning, sequencing, PCR, protein expression, and much more. Each protocol represents a time-tested, step-by-step recipe that creates an understanding of the procedure, easily reproducible results, and confidence that the procedure will work. The collection includes not only many updated and improved classic techniques, but also a powerful group of advanced methods that point to future progress, among them nonisotopic DNA labeling, silver staining, and automatic sequencing. This excellent bench companion will help those who need to learn for the first time how to conduct research on the molecular biology of nucleic acids or those who need to broaden their competence and laboratory skills. Even highly skilled researchers will find many time-saving techniques.

...this handbook serves its purpose well by being easily readable - FEBS Letters
