"Practical information for working researchers in the life sciences interested in learning the basic principles of gene cloning and recombinant DNA techniques. The contributors provide the background material novices need to understand how a technique works, what it achieves, and how to make modifications to suit their own requirements, as well as advice on more advanced techniques. Vol. 2 describes procedures for isolating and studying individual genes, preparation and screening of libraries, polymerase chain reactions, DNA sequencing, and studying gene expression. The latest edition reflects the dramatic expansion in the range and sophistication of molecular biology techniques."--SciTech Book News
