Understanding DNA and Gene Cloning: A Guide for the Curious
Gene cloning technologies continue to spur advances in many biological disciplines. Intended for the non-scientist who is interested in gaining sufficient background to understand often complex articles, this text aims to serve as a supplement for general biology or introductory genetics courses. It is also suitable as a main text in short courses for non-science majors interested in current topics such as AIDS, biotechnology, and bioethics. The previous edition of this book was published in 1984.
