About this book

Addresses the basic principles of gene cloning, the application of cloning in gene analysis, and the role of gene cloning in research and biotechnology.

'Had I ever been a practical molecular biologist, this is the book that would reassure me of the principles behind my experiments. Furthermore, if, for example, I wanted to find the transcription starting point of a gene, this would tell me the theory behind how to do it. Thus it is not a lab cookbook or manual, but a very user-friendly and helpful adviser. I was rather impressed with this book and will suggest it as a text, not only for my second and third year students but also for our MSc molecular genetics course.' - The Times Higher Education Supplement, February 23rd 2007 'Instructors seeking a text for a course in molecular biology would be wise to consider this one. The authors are to be commended for a readable and well organized presentation. This is a strong effort. The presentation is logical, the level correct. Were I to teach a course in this area, this book would be high on my list.' - Eugene A Davidson, PhD, Georgetown University School of Medicine, Doody's Reviews, April 2007 'The writing is clear and concise and, importantly for beginners, the essential information is not lost amongst a myriad of details. The instructor will find an excellent combination of traditional and up-to-date topics treated and will be able to easily complement this with information from the literature or laboratory.' - BIOCHEMISTRY AND MOLECULAR BIOLOGY EDUCATION, Vol. 36, 2008
