"No group is more suited to review the field than Henry Erlich and his colleagues at Cetus. . . . extremely successful in conveying both the theoretical and the applied aspects of PCR. . . . clear yet detailed. . . . long overdue. It lives up to all expectations, and will be valuable to both the neophyte and the experienced PCR scientist. . . . it should be purchased and read quickly, for if the field continues to move as quickly as it has the authors will be writing the next edition early." --Nature"Intended to provide detailed [PCR] protocols for beginners and to illustrate the scope of the technique with a selection of research and medical applications. An excellent source of basic PCR techniques. . . . chapters are concise, but thorough, with complete references." --BioPharm"This slim, readable, inexpensive book offers a great introduction to this incredibly useful technique and provides a glimpse of the astonishing diversity of applications. It's one of the few books currently available devoted exclusively to PCR. . . . the availability of all this diversity in a short book is a real plus. All the chapters are exciting. . . . a good book for beginners in PCR. I recommend this book even to readers who aren't planning to jump into PCR any time soon. . . . simple, inexpensive, and fun." --Plant Genetics Newsletter"Contains a wealth of useful information for both the novice and also the experienced PCR user. . . . coherent." --Environmental and Molecular Mutagenesis
