Gene probes find a wide variety of uses in molecular biology, and are essential tools for genetic research. This volume describes some of their many applications, from the study of nucleic acids, through blotting techniques and gene targeting, to analysis of human genetic mutations. ACompanion volume, Genes Probes 1, covers preparation of the probes. The two books are timely additions to the series, as this is a progressive field which continues to grow in importance.
S. J. Higgins is at University of Leeds.
