The enormous advances made in molecular biology have allowed scientists to manipulate DNA with relative ease. This means that molecular biology has become a widely-used tool for answering scientific questions that may be quite unrelated to genetics and cell biology. This new book focuses on the most important techniques needed by undergraduate and post-graduate students when undertaking research in this area. Written in an accessible style and adopting a 'discovery' approach, to encourage the students to explore and experiment for them selves, this book will be invaluable to novices required and interested in learning these techniques. * Students will evaluate the effect of genetic engineering through the practical application of wet biochemistry techniques and prepare mutations that can be evaluated by other classes. * Coverage will include computer tutorials for sequencing and genomics and will possibly include some coverage of molecular modelling too. * Guidelines on searching the primary literature, oral reports, laboratory notebooks record keeping and report writing will either be included within appendices at the back of the book, or on a supplementary web site linked to the book.
