Molecular Microbial Ecology Manual
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. Postgraduate students and research scientists in the plant and soils sciences and plant molecular biology should find this book of interest.
