General description

A comprehensive volume of molecular biology methods ranging from DNA extraction to gene localization in situ. The 120 techniques cited list all necessary materials and reagents, step-by-step instruction, pitfalls to avoid, troubleshooting tips, alternate methods, and reasons for certain steps. All key elements contributing significantly to success or failure in the lab. It is a collection of all classic and cutting-edge techniques for isolation, analysis, and manipulation of nucleic acids.
