About this book

A technique used to amplify the number of copies of a specific region of DNA, the polymerase chain reaction (PCR) is at the forefront of the dramatic development of biochemistry. PCR Technology: Current Innovations provides the tools for developing innovative approaches to using this leading technology. It includes theoretical considerations, discussions, and a selection of state-of-the-art techniques for mutation studies, clinical diagnosis, and the detection of food-borne pathogens. This edition also discusses the preparation of PCR experiments, includes examples of analytical PCR divided into qualitative and quantitative applications, and explores preparative methods that address DNA generation for further analysis and in vitro evolution.

Media reviews

Praise for previous editions:

"This [...] second edition provides up-to-date information on PCR technology and applications and covers a selection of widely used procedures and approaches for qualitative as well as quantitative queries. It certainly offers easy to follow, step-by-step protocols and explains the parameters governing PCR reaction outcomes [...] [A] fundamental reference for scientists new to PCR technology and a source of up-to-date applications for those familiar with the method [...] I highly recommend this book as a useful tool for hospital scientists who may use PCR technology in their work; or for scientific researchers [...] "
