About this book

Each of the protocols is written relatively independent of the rest of the text, allowing the reader to immediately begin using a procedure without having to study the text from cover to cover... Very few other molecular biology guide books are available that cover the isolation and manipulation of RNA as exhaustingly as does this one. This book would be highly valuable in any research facility engaged in molecular biology. --Mark A. Jandreski, Loyola University Medical Center, DOODY'S ELECTRONIC JOURNAL
