Laboratory Methods in Enzymology: DNA book cover

Laboratory Methods in Enzymology: DNA

Methods in Enzymology volumes provide an indispensable tool for the researcher. Each volume is carefully written and edited by experts to contain state-of-the-art reviews and step-by-step protocols.

In this volume, we have brought together a number of core protocols concentrating on DNA, complementing the traditional content that is found in past, present and future Methods in Enzymology volumes.


Biochemists, biophysicists, molecular biologists, analytical chemists, and physiologists
