This manual provides general information about molecular techniques relevant to molecular ecological research. Attention is paid to the use of molecular methods for studying the fate of genetically modified and native microorganisms in the environment. The book is intended for postgraduate students and research scientists in the plant and soils sciences and plant molecular biology. The first supplement extends the sections published in the basic work.
