An unprecedented collection of all the most up-to-date techniques for gene isolation and mapping, including the latest methods for gene characterization using database analyses. This collection of thoroughly tested recipes also includes chapters for the computational analysis of novel cDNA sequences with up-to-the-minute information on basic sequence analysis, sequence similarity searches, exon detection and similarity searches, and the prediction of gene function. Its state-of-the-art methods constitute indispensable tools for all scientists engaged in the search for specific disease genes, or in the general advancement of the human genome project.
