MOLECULAR BIOLOGY (Principles and Practices) introduces undergraduates, postgraduates as well as research students of biotechnology to basic experimental molecular biology laboratory techniques. Emphasis has been given to techniques encountered in practical classes with the principles and theories behind this explained in detail. No contemporary book on Practical Molecular Biology would be complete without chapters on Bio-Safety, Laboratory Set-up, Molecular Biology Calculations and Glossary. These topics have been extensively covered in this book. This is essential reading for all biosciences students, biotechnology and preclinical medical students for whom practical molecular biology forms part of the syllabus.
