Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


DNA technology has a vital role in diverse fields such as criminal investigation and gene therapy - dynamic areas involving many specialized terms and techniques. This unique dictionary offers current, detailed, accessible information to lecturers, researchers, students and technicians throughout the biomedical sciences. It is more up-to-date than existing textbooks in many aspects of DNA technology - with over 1,000 references from mainstream journals. It offers clear explanations of terms, techniques, and tests, including commercial systems, with detailed coverage of many important procedures and methods. It explains not only well-established methodology but includes new technology and data from the latest research journals, going well beyond the remit of most science dictionaries. It includes essay-style entries on many major topics to assist newcomers to the field. It covers topics relevant to medicine (diagnosis and gene therapy); veterinary science; biotechnology; biochemistry; pharmaceutical science/drug development; molecular biology; microbiology; epidemiology; genomics; environmental science; plant science/agriculture; taxonomy; and forensic science.
