Updated Seventh Edition Published in 2006


This book is written at an advanced undergraduate level, assuming a basic knowledge of molecular biology and genetics but no knowledge of recombinant DNA technology or genomics. At the same time the book is organized in such amanner that a researcher already working in this general field might be able to quickly find an area where they need refreshing or up to date information. The book begins with a historical review of research into genes and how the present day technologies came about. This information has been selected so that the student will have an understanding of how today's technology has evolved. It is a short history, and does not go into the many paths that led to procedures that are no longer in use. This book is now in its seventh edition with a new edition coming out every 4 to 5 years since the original publication in 1980. As such, the book is up to date as of the state of the technology about the end of 2005.

Price is good but not the book


The price was much cheaper than the bookstore at my college, but I was disappointed by the book itself. Typically I don't mind handwritten notes in books, but most pages have annotations that are barely legible and underlining that interferes with my studying. Generally I expect some writing when I buy a book advertised as "good," but this is a bit excessive.

It is a complete book for biotechnology


This is a book is an almost complete reference for anyone studying or like biotechnologia covering almost all areas of very nice way.

Benchmark Textbook for Molecular Biologist.


This book is a standard textbook for a student pursuing a career in molecular biology. The content is quite comprehensive, particularly about many technical and theoretical aspects in laboratory methods. Highly recommended.

It is really good.
