Molecular Biology Problem Solver
A Laboratory GuideBook - 2001
Molecular Biology Problem Solver: A LaboratoryGuide asks the reader to consider crucial questions, suchas:Have you selected the most appropriate research strategy? Have you identified the issues critical to your successfulapplication of a technique? Are you familiar with the limitations of a giventechnique? When should common procedural rules of thumb not beapplied? What strategies could you apply to resolve a problem?
A unique question-based format reviews common assumptions andlaboratory practices, with the aim of offering a firm understandingof how techniques and procedures work, as well as how to avoidproblems. Some major issues explored by the book's expertcontributors include:Working safely with biological samples and radioactivematerials DNA and RNA purification PCR Protein and nucleid acid hybridization Prokaryotic and eukaryotic expression systems Properly using and maintaining laboratory equipment
