Editorial Reviews

Anyone contemplating using in situ hybridisation in their laboratory will need a thorough grounding in the background and principles of the methods. This book excels in its background presentation, with clear explanations and good referencing.....There are very fewbooks dealing with thepracticalities of in situ hybridisation. This one makes a major contribution to the subject and therefore is invaluable as a reference for many scientists and clinicians Dr Deborah K Dun-Waters, The Bulletin of the Royal College of Pathologists, No. 107 June 1999
