The volumes in this series include contemporary techniques significant to a particular branch of neuroscience. They are an invaluable aid to the student as well as the experienced researcher not only in developing protocols in neuroscience but in disciplines where research is becoming closely related to neuroscience. Each volume ofMethods in Neurosciencescontains an index, and each chapter includes references. Dr. Conn became Editor-in-Chief of the series beginning with Volume 15, so each subsequent volume could be guest-edited by an expert in that specific field. This further strengthens the depth of coverage inMethods in Neurosciencesfor students and researchers alike.

Key Features
* Direct application of PCR to fresh or frozen clinical specimens (e.g., blood and solid tissue)
* Complete retrieval of novel expressed genes by PCR without screening a library
* Quantitation by PCR
* Mutagenesis by PCR
* PCR in AIDS research
* Simple and effective protocols for PCR on archival specimens
