About this book

Electrophoresis is a powerful method to analyze nucleic acids (DNA, RNA). Various sophisticated techniques such as capillary electrophoresis, pulsed-field electrophoresis, fingerprinting using RFLP and RAPD, DNA sequencing, and mobility shift assay are described in detail. The required apparatus, appropriate use, preparation of probes, gel staining, interpretation of results, tricks for troubleshooting, manufacturers addresses, helpful Internet resources as well as specific applications, e.g. in legal medicine, microbiology and agriculture, are presented by leading experts.
