This book is intended for researchers, technicians, teachers and students in plant and animal, cell, developmental, and molecular biology, plant physiology, botany, histology, pathology, morphology, and biochemistry. "Tissue Printing" explains and compiles step-by-step methods and applications of this elegantly simple and practical technique. The protocols can be easily modified by the research biologists or teacher to study a wide variety of biological problems for basic research or classroom teaching. Tissue printing requires no expensive equipment for succcessful implementation, is safe, and can be used for both plant and animal systems. Ths practial laboratory guide contains many illustrative halftones, a complete bibliography, technique overviews, detailed protocols, and sample practical applications.
Key features include step-by-step protocols and practical applications of tissue printing to the plant and animal sciences; simple, rapid low-budget techniques for study of proteins and nucleic acids at the tissue level; protocols which have been tested and successfully used by authors of each chapter and their colleagues; chapters which are illustrated and extensively referenced to original literature.
