Innovative biological investigators offer a powerful and highly useful collection of up-to-date methods for the isolation of RNA from a variety of sources, including bacterial, plant, and mammalian cells. These fine-tuned protocols take both the experienced and inexperienced investigator through the nuances of RNA manipulation, from extraction to in vitro translation. The book also includes protocols for the analysis and characterization of isolated RNA species and extensive troubleshooting hints and tips to ensure easy reproducibility. RNA Isolation and Characterization Protocols is the single best collection of easily reproducible, step-by-step RNA techniques now available for today's bench scientists.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

From the Publisher
"This book is aimed at clinical specialists as well as experimentalists. . .The references are recent. I strongly recommend its use by those involved in breast cancer treatment. It is one of the few books that deal with the management of benign breast conditions."-Oncology
