GUS Protocols : Using the GUS Gene as a Reporter of Gene Expression
The -glucuronidase (GUS) gene is extremely useful as a reporter of the expression of introudced genes and can be used in organisms where other reporter genes are useless. GUS Protocols provides instructions and essential background information that will enable researchers to effectively use the GUS gene as a reporter of the expression of introduce genes.
