About this book

Contents include: describes automated procedures used in microbiology and molecular biology; includes developments in robotics and vision systems; discusses paralogous duplications in microbial genomes; and describes and stresses the need for functional analysis.

Praise for the Volume "The editors have complied an impressive group of international investigators and experts in microbial and genomic automation, producing a text that clearly describes the present and future importance of automated protocol in biomedical research. This text should be read by all biomedical researchers..." --DOODY'S ELECTRONIC JOURNAL Praise for the Series "An invaluable resource for the detailed analysis of cellular gene function and genome architecture." --NATURE
