Known as the standard introductory text to this exciting area, the sixth edition of Gene Cloning and DNA Analysis addresses new areas of research whilst retaining the philosophy of the previous editions. Assuming the reader has little prior knowledge of the subject, the text carefully lays out the principles of the techniques used and their applications, using over 250 four-color illustrations. In addition to changes throughout, the final four chapters have been significantly updated and extended to reflect striking advances made in recent years in the applications of gene cloning and DNA analysis in biotechnology.
