PCR Cloning Protocols, Second Edition, updates and expands Bruce White's best-selling "PCR Cloning Protocols" (1997) with the newest procedures for DNA cloning and mutagenesis. Here the researcher will find readily reproducible methods for all the major aspects of PCR use, including PCR optimization, computer programs for PCR primer design and analysis, and novel variations for cloning genes of special characteristics or origin, with emphasis on long distance PCR and GC-rich template amplification. Also included are both conventional and novel enzyme-free and restriction site-free procedures to clone PCR products into a range of vectors, as well as state-of-the-art protocols to facilitate DNA mutagenesis and recombination, and to clone the challenging uncharacterized DNA flanking a known DNA fragment.
...the book provides a valuable reference source for PCR-related technologies and protocols for students, postdocs and technicians. - Heredity Review of the first edition. This volume provides protocols useful to both the inexperienced and the experienced investigator. Most importantly it highlights the emerging role of PCR as a versatile tool for the molecular biologist eliminating many laborious and expensive techniques associated with traditional gene isolation and analysis. - Biochemical Education
