In the eight years since the original publication of Molecular Biology Labfax, there has been a vast proliferation of molecular biology techniques. The Second Edition has been divided into two parts: Recombinant DNA, and Gene Analysis. Together they comprise a comprehensive collection of the most up-to-date methods available in molecular biology. This second volume of the two-part Second Edition provides key information on nucleic acid blotting and hybridization, DNA sequencing, PCR, labelingnucleic acids, electrophoresis, centrifugation, chemicals and reagents, and safety. Molecular Biology Labfax will be essential for scientists of all disciplines within the life sciences who use molecular biological techniques.

Review quote

"The book is compiled with care and contains text that explains technical terms that then can be used with understanding...especially useful for young investigators who are new to the field...this book qualifies to be the present-day standard reference..."-Amit Gupta, University of Illinois, in ASM NEWS (1999)
