Bimal D. Theophilus and Ralph Rapley provide biological and clinical investigators with a comprehensive collection of new, recent, and updated PCR-based screening methods suitable for detecting the presence of both known and novel mutations. The methods cover point mutations (e.g., ASO-PCR, SSCP, DGGE, chemical cleavage), deletions (multiplex PCR, FISH, blotting), non-sense mutations (PTT), and more. The new and exciting techniques of DNA array analysis, along with such recently developed experimental methods as conformation-sensitive gel electrophoresis, are also included. Each chapter explains the basic theory behind the technique and provides valuable notes essential for its successful execution.
The book provides access to the highly productive and readily reproducible PCR-based mutation detection methods, that are behind many of today's major scientific and medical advances. - Clinical Laboratory International
