A further range of innovations in molecular biology is comprehensively covered in this major new volume. The most important advances and improvements in vital areas such as DNA and protein sequencing, non-radioactive labelling, electroporation, PNA and magnetic bead technology are described. The book also covers the applications of HPLC and NMR in molecular biology. Written by internationally renown scientists and packed with key protocols, applications and innovations, this book and is essential reading for all molecular biologists. An indispensable practical guide. Topics covered include:
•   automated DNA sequencing
•   protein sequencing
•   peptide nucleic acids (PNA)
•   magnetic bead technology
•   antisense technology and ribozymes
•   non-radioactive labelling and detection
•   electroporation
•   molecular phylogenetics
•   HPLC in molecular biology
•   NMR in molecular biology
