General description

Innovative biological investigators offer a powerful and highly useful collection of up-to-date methods for the isolation of RNA from a variety of sources, including bacterial, plant, and mammalian cells. These fine-tuned protocols take both the experienced and inexperienced investigator through the nuances of RNA manipulation, from extraction to in vitro translation. The book also includes protocols for the analysis and characterization of isolated RNA species and extensive troubleshooting hints and tips to ensure easy reproducibility.
