About this book

Advanced Techniques in Soil Microbiology presents a wide range of biotechnological methods for application in soil microbiology analysis. These include all essential methods involving molecular biology, immunology, microbiology, and structural biology, such as transcriptome analysis, RNAi technology, molecular matchmaking, RAPD, T-RFLP and FT/MS.

The techniques and procedures have been selected with the aim of offering practical guides for immediate use in the laboratory. The systems investigated range from individual molecules and cells to entire eukaryotic organisms, with a focus on bacteria, fungi, mycorrhiza, and higher plants. This volume of state-of-the-art, practice oriented methods will be of great use both to the first-timer and to the experienced scientist.

Aus den Rezensionen: "! Advanced Techniques in Soil Microbiology wendet sich an den Praktiker, der aktuelle biochemische Methoden direkt im Labor anwenden mochte. Dieses Ziel wird dadurch erreicht, dass die Methoden in Listenform Schritt fur Schritt erklart werden. Besonders hervorgehoben werden sollte hierbei, dass auch kleinere Tipps ! in dem Buch ! eine Erwahnung finden. ! Diese ! Tipps werden ! kurz erklart, wodurch das Studium der Protokolle auch fur den erfahrenen ! Wissenschaftler durchaus Neues zu bieten hat !"
