PCR Technology: Principles and Applications for DNA Amplification
Polymerase chain reaction (PCR) technology is a revolutionary innovation which enables scientists to rapidly generate large amounts of genetic material from a slight trace which would otherwise be too small to analyze. With applications in both research and diagnostics, PCR is becoming a standard procedure in biotechnology and medical diagnostic laboratories. This book is an introduction and guide to the new technology, covering the basic methodologies and their applications in research and medicine, emphasizing practical aspects. Each chapter is written by pioneers in the field and most include detailed protocols and favorite PCR "recipes". Students and researchers in all areas of biotechnology and molecular biology will find this book the introduction to PCR they've been looking for.
