mRNA Formation and Function presents a compendium of techniques geared exclusively toward the understanding of RNA metabolism. It will be particularly useful because a number of different organisms and systems are employed.

Key Features

  • Isolation and characterization of specific RNA binding proteins
  • RNA metabolism and associated regulatory proteins
  • RNA detection and localization
  • A genetic approach to RNA function


Geneticists, biochemists, molecular biologists, cell biologists, and microbiologists
