This laboratory manual gives a thorough introduction to basic techniques. It is the result of practical experience, with each protocol having been used extensively in undergraduate courses or tested in the authors laboratory. In addition to detailed protocols and practical notes, each technique includes an overview of its general importance, the time and expense involved in its application and a description of the theoretical mechanisms of each step. This enables users to design their own modifications or to adapt the method to different systems. Surzycki has been holding undergraduate courses and workshops for many years, during which time he has extensively modified and refined the techniques described here.

The past several decades have witnessed an impressive array of conceptual and techno logical advances in the biomedical sciences. Much of the progress in this area has developed directly as a result of new morphology-based methods that have permitted the assessment of chemical, enzymatic, immunological, and molecular parameters at the cellular and tissue levels. Additional novel approaches including laser capture microdissection have also emerged for the acquisition of homogeneous cell popula tions for molecular analyses. These methodologies have literally reshaped the approaches to fundamental biological questions and have also had a major impact in the area of diagnostic pathology. Much of the groundwork for the development of morphological methods was estab th lished in the early part of the 19 century by Francois-Vincent Raspail, generally acknowledged as the founder of the science of histochemistry. The earliest work in the field was primarily in the hands of botanists and many of the approaches to the under standing of the chemical composition of cells and tissues involved techniques such as microincineration, which destroyed structural integrity. The development of aniline th dyes in the early 20 century served as a major impetus to studies of the structural rather than chemical composition of tissue. Later in the century, however, the focus returned to the identification of chemical constituents in the context of intact cell and tissue structure.

Methods in Plant Molecular Biology is a lab manual that introduces students to a diversity of molecular techniques needed for experiments with plant cells. Those included have been perfected and are now presented for the first time in a usable and teachable form. Because the manual integrates protein, RNA, and DNA techniques, it will serve students, teachers, and researchers in plant physiology, biophysics, and animal molecular biology who have no previous experience handling recombinant DNA or purified proteins. It can also be used by the established molecular biologist who wishes to utilize the powerful techniques of recombinant DNA to explore the mysteries of the plant kingdom. Eight basic experiments which can be used collectively or individually cover Recombinant Cloning and Screening in E. coli; DNA Sequencing Plant RNA Isolation and in Vitro Translations Plant DNA Isolations and Genomic DNA Southern Analysis Chloroplast Isolation and Protein Synthesis Plant Tissue Culture and Agrobacterium Transformations Experiments that have been student tested for three years Blueprints for setting up gel rigs Comprehensive course schedule outlining individual procedures to be finished in each lab segment Course can be tailored to suit the needs of the individual instructor

This manual is an indispensable tool for introducing advanced undergraduates and beginning graduate students to the techniques of recombinant DNA technology, or gene cloning and expression. The techniques used in basic research and biotechnology laboratories are covered in detail. Students gain hands-on experience from start to finish in subcloning a gene into an expression vector, through purification of the recombinant protein. The third edition has been completely re-written, with new laboratory exercises and all new illustrations and text, designed for a typical 15-week semester, rather than a 4-week intensive course. The “project approach to experiments was maintained: students still follow a cloning project through to completion, culminating in the purification of recombinant protein. It takes advantage of the enhanced green fluorescent protein - students can actually visualize positive clones following IPTG induction. Cover basic concepts and techniques used in molecular biology research labs Student-tested labs proven successful in a real classroom laboratories Exercises simulate a cloning project that would be performed in a real research lab "Project" approach to experiments gives students an overview of the entire process Prep-list appendix contains necessary recipes and catalog numbers, providing staff with detailed instructions

Short Protocols in Molecular Biology Fourth Edition The Desktop Guide to Your Lab Edited by Frederick M. Ausubel, Roger Brent, Robert E. Kingston, David D. Moore, J. G. Seidman, John A. Smith, and Kevin Struhl Providing condensed descriptions of more than 600 methods compiled from Current Protocols in Molecular Biology, this updated edition of the classic laboratory manual thoroughly explores molecular biology in an easily accessible, hands-on format. Examining the physiochemical organization of living matter from a molecular basis requires a text which is informative and well annotated-Short Protocols in Molecular Biology, Fourth Edition offers both. The book is specifically designed to provide quick access to step-by-step instructions for the essential methods used in every major area of molecular biological research. The authors have enriched the text with diagrams, charts, and material lists to enhance comprehension of the material and facilitate the experimental set-up. This edition has been expanded to include the latest developments in cutting-edge techniques such as fluorescent DNA sequencing, PCR optimization, yeast two-hybrid/interaction trap analysis, and sequence similarity searching using Blast. Classic techniques in plasmid and phage manipulation and mammalian cell selection have also benefited from the updating and reflect the methods currently used in leading research facilities around the world. New topics to this edition include: * Informatics for Molecular Biologists * Analysis of Protein Interactions * Epitope Tagging * Mathematics and Statistics for Molecular Biologists Short Protocols in Molecular Biology, Fourth Edition is an authoritative and indispensable guide for all life scientists and researchers who are looking to improve their understanding of molecular biology methods.

A History of Molecular Biology

Every day it seems the media focus on yet another new development in biology--gene therapy, the human genome project, the creation of new varieties of animals and plants through genetic engineering. These possibilities have all emanated from molecular biology. A History of Molecular Biology is a complete but compact account for a general readership of the history of this revolution. Michel Morange, himself a molecular biologist, takes us from the turn-of-the-century convergence of molecular biology's two progenitors, genetics and biochemistry, to the perfection of gene splicing and cloning techniques in the 1980s. Drawing on the important work of American, English, and French historians of science, Morange describes the major discoveries--the double helix, messenger RNA, oncogenes, DNA polymerase--but also explains how and why these breakthroughs took place. The book is enlivened by mini-biographies of the founders of molecular biology: Delbrück, Watson and Crick, Monod and Jacob, Nirenberg. This ambitious history covers the story of the transformation of biology over the last one hundred years; the transformation of disciplines: biochemistry, genetics, embryology, and evolutionary biology; and, finally, the emergence of the biotechnology industry. An important contribution to the history of science, A History of Molecular Biology will also be valued by general readers for its clear explanations of the theory and practice of molecular biology today. Molecular biologists themselves will find Morange's historical perspective critical to an understanding of what is at stake in current biological research.
