This book is designed to provide research workers with complete and detailed protocols for studying bacterial plasmids and for using both plasmids and phagemids as vectors. Techniques for studying fundamental aspects of plasmids, such as replication, are included as well as methods for usingplasmid vectors in important groups of bacteria. Also described are protocols for using phagemids, which are extremely useful tools for genetic engineering.
