About this book

The analysis of DNA sequence polymorphisms and mutations is of central importance in understanding biological systems. This book is devoted to the experimental analysis of DNA and presents easy-to-follow protocols. Various techniques from the simple to the highly complex are detailed in this volume, providing a wide spectrum of available methods and practical advice. The methods are described in terms of: history and background; principles and theory; equipment and reagents; protocols; troubleshooting; applications; improvements; results; comparisons with other methods; and, future prospects and developments. This is an essential manual for researchers working in human, animal, or plant molecular genetics and is particularly valuable for hospital and commercial laboratories.
