Mutation detection is increasingly undertaken in a wide spectrum of research areas: in medicine it is fundamental in isolating disease genes and diagnbosis, and is especially important in cancer research; in biology, commercially important genes can be identified by the mutations they contain.But mutation detection is time-consuming and expensive. This volume offers the latest tried and tested protocols for a range of detection methods, from the labs of the leading researchers in the field.
R. G. H. Cotton is at Mutation Research Centre, Victoria. E. Edkins is at Joint Women's and Children's Hospital, Perth.
