Volume 18 explores the latest advances in recombinant DNA molecule techniques and how they are revolutionizing basic research in biology. Chapters discuss obtaining good expression of genetically engineered pest-resistant genes introduced in crop plants, cloning DNAs containing palindromes, and identifying genes by 3' terminal exon trapping and much more.
Jane K. Setlow, PhD. has championed the field of genetics for over 30 years, agreeing to edit Genetic Engineering: Principles & Methods since its inception in 1979. An internationally recognized scientist with numerous publications, Dr. Setlow is the former Chairperson of the NIH Recombinant DNA Molecule Advisory Committee (RAC). Her l...
