About this book
Gene probes find a wide variety of uses in molecular biology, and are essential tools for genetic research. This volume describes some of their many applications, from the study of nucleic acids, through blotting techniques and gene targeting, to the analysis of human genetic mutations. A companion volume covers the preparation of these probes. The volumes aim to contribute to a growing field of research.
