About this book

The Molecular Biology of Insect Disease Vectors is a source book of detailed protocols covering the important techniques used in molecular entomology. The chapters are written such that a competent scientist who is unfamiliar with the method can carry out the techniques successfully, either at the first attempt, or with a little practice, by simply following the detailed procedures.

Each chapter in The Molecular Biology of Insect Disease Vectors includes: an introductory narrative; a detailed list of materials and equipment required; a detailed, step-by-step protocol; a section of explanatory notes; a bibliography.
