General description

A collection of methods for using luciferase and green fluorescent protein in analytical biochemistry, molecular toxicology, and cell-based assays. The contributors are those who have developed and perfected their methods. The wide variety of illustrative applications ranges from specific molecular titer to microbial detection and analysis. Other topics include the manipulation of the lux, luc, and gfp genes and construction of recombinant organisms. Cutting-edge techniques, detailed instructions, and diverse examples should make this book a standard reference.
