About this book

The first comprehensive treatment of energy transfer (ET) nucleic acid probes. Hands-on experts thoroughly describe all the major probes, both fluorescence resonance energy transfer (FRET)-based and non-FRET-based, and provide a complete set of techniques to monitor DNA and RNA reactions, including hybridization, amplification, cleavage, folding, and associations with proteins, other molecules, and metal ions. Optimal design strategies for customized ET probes are presented, as well as techniques for distance determination in protein-DNA complexes and the detection of topological DNA alterations, mutations, DNA breaks and single nucleotide polymorphisms. Merging work on nanotechnology, and fluorescent probes, authors describe in detail the design and application of ET-using molecular devices, such as biosensors, molecular machines, and logic gates for molecular scale computation.

Media reviews

From the reviews: "The content of the book provides a complete source of information in the DNA/RNA area and related fields. ! The companion CD contains all illustrations and figures in color. In brief, the book is a useful, practical source of information. ! The group of scientists and researchers ! that forms the potential market for this book can be extended with an important category: undergraduate and graduate students and postdoctoral researchers. Some materials can be adapted for interdisciplinary courses in molecular life sciences." (Dr. Ton Visser, Molecular Biotechnology, Vol. 34, September, 2006) "Fluorescence Energy Transfer Nucleic Acid Probes, Design and Protocols is a timely book. It is the first concise collection of fluorescence methods and assays used in exploring biomolecular structure, dynamic and interaction. ! a rich compendium of information for the beginner in the field, as well as a source of ideas and inspiration for the advanced researcher. It is a book that should be on the shelf in all laboratories using fluorescent-probe techniques in biochemistry and molecular biology." (Sabine Muller, ChemBioChem, Vol. 8, 2007)
