About this book

Analysing Gene Expression combines the experience of 225 experts on 900 pages. Scientists worldwide are currently overwhelmed by the ever-increasing number and diversity of genome projects. Analysing Gene Expression is your guide through the jungle of new methods and techniques available to analyse gene expression – the first to provide such a broad view of the measurement of mRNA and protein expression in vitro, in situ and even in vivo. Despite this broad approach, detail is sufficient for you to grasp the principles behind each method. In each case, the authors weigh up the advantages and disadvantages, paying particular attention to the automated, high-throughput processing demanded by the biotech industry. Completely up to date, Analysing Gene Expression covers such ground-breaking methods such as DNA microarrays, serial analysis of gene expression, differential display, and identification of open reading frame expressed sequence tags. All the methods and necessary equipment are presented visually in more than 300 mainly colour illustrations to assist their step-by-step reproduction in your laboratory. Each chapter is rounded off with its own set of extensive references that provide access to detailed experimental protocols. In short, the bible of analysing gene expression.

The editors...have truly provided an exception information repository on an enormous array of genetic expression-related informaion...there is no other source that provides the reader with such a clear understanding of the possibilities and pitfalls associated with each technique...highly recommended. (SIM News) "The books is useful as starting points for novices, or a convenient summary of the field for those familiar with this area. The material that is covered is timely and reasonable in scope...this book is a good "one-stop-shopping" summary of this rapidly evolving area." (Cassandra Smith, Boston University, Biomolecular Engineering, November 2004) "This two-volume book written by a total of 225 authors presents an excellent overview and deep insight into the field of eukariotic gene expression and its analysis." (ChemBioChem, Wolfgang Schumann, Universitat Bayreuth) "Taken all over, this book has the potential to become the encyclopedia of gene expression analysis." (Sabine Kleinsteuber, Engineering in Life Sciences, 2/2004) "...the text is clear and the illustrations are excellent... The work will be useful for reference, especially to provide a quick and clear summary of the various techniques for postgraduates, postdocs and older research supervisors." (Simon Baumberg, University of Leeds, Microbiology Today, Vol. 31, November 2004)
