Description

The critically acclaimed laboratory standard, Methods in Enzymology, is one of the most highly respected publications in the field of biochemistry. Since 1955, each volume has been eagerly awaited, frequently consulted, and praised by researchers and reviewers alike. The series contains much material still relevant today - truly an essential publication for researchers in all fields of life sciences. Molecular Evolution Producing the Biochemical Data part B is a continuation of methods published in Part A (1993, volume 224). The work is a very methodological look at markers, templates, genomes, datasets and analyses used in studies of biological diversity.
