About this book

Never before has it been so critical for lab workers to possess the proper tools and methodologies necessary to determine the structure, function, and expression of the corresponding proteins encoded in the genome. Mulhardt's Molecular Biology and Genomics helps aid in this daunting task by providing the reader with tips and tricks for more successful lab experiments. This strategic lab guide explores the current methodological variety of molecular biology and genomics in a simple manner, addressing the assets and drawbacks as well as critical points.

Media reviews

Praise for the German edition:
"This lab book illustrates ways out of experimental dead ends and teaches a feeling for doing the right experiment at the right time."
Swiss Laboratory Magazine
 



Other reviews:
"With innumerable tips to complete basic knowledge, Mulhardt paves the cumbersome ways from nucleic acids to their translation to gene expression, gene therapy and more."
Laboratory Journal

"It's no miracle that this book has had a major sales impact."
Food And Biotechnology

"The book reveals the laboratory secrets that are usually learned the hard way, like how not to let agarose boil over in the microwave. Besides protocols and buffer recipes, the book gives advice for setting realisitc goals and eventually becoming an independent scientist , including these encouraging words: 'The experiment will be successful, as long as you are strong enough to put up with six months of the deepest depressioin.' I wish I had this book when I started graduate school."
– Wendy Chao, in The Scientist, April 1, 2007
