LABFAX volumes are specially designed to meet the needs of researchers working at the bench, in a variety of disciplines in the Life Sciences. Each book clearly presents key information for a major subject area in one place. These compilations of methods and data, clearly laid out, and often in tabular form will save you hours of searching for that elusive fact. The authors and editors of each LABFAX volume, experts in their fields, have searched the original literature to synthesise the most up-to-date and accurate data, needed by researchers at all levels.
The second edition of the hugely successful Molecular Biology Labfax is divided into two complementary parts. The first focuses on Recombinant DNA, and the second on Gene Analysis. Together they comprise a comprehensive compendium of the most up-to-date methods and data available in molecular biology, covering enzymes used for restriction, methylation and modification of nucleic acids, cloning vectors, hosts, genomes and genes, as well as techniques such as blotting and hybridization, DNA sequencing, PCR methodology, labelling and separation of nucleic acids. Useful information is also given on general chemicals and reagents, and safety considerations. The information is clearly presented, and easily accessible, and complemented by excellent diagrams. Molecular Biology Labfax will be essential for any scientist using molecular biological techniques, from all disciplines within the life sciences, and for both those new to the field, as well as experienced researchers.

Audience: Research scientists at postgraduate, postdoctoral level and above, working in molecular biology, recombinant DNA, gene cloning and other life sciences.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The book is compiled with care and contains text that explains technical terms that then can be used with understanding. This makes it especially useful for young investigators who are new to the field. ...this book qualifies to be the present-day standard reference."
—Amit Gupta, University of Illinois, Chicago, in ASM NEWS (April 1999)
