About this book

PCR has been successfully utilized in every facet of basic, cli- cal, and applied studies of the life sciences, and the impact that PCR has had on life science research is already staggering. C- comitant with the essentially universal use of PCR has been the creative and explosive development of a wide range of PCR-based techniques and applications. These increasingly numerous pro- cols have each had the general effect of facilitating and acceler- ing research. Because PCR technology is relatively easy and inexpensive, PCR applications are well within the reach of every research lab. In this sense, PCR has become the "equalizer" between "small" and "big" labs, since its use makes certain projects, especially those related to molecular cloning, now far more feasible for the small lab with a modest budget. This new volume on PCR Protocols does not attempt the impossible task of representing all PCR-based protocols. Rather, it presents a range of protocols, both analytical and preparative, that provide a solid base of knowledge on the use of PCR in many c- mon research problems. The first six chapters provide some basic information on how to get started. Chapters 7-19 represent primarily analytical uses of PCR, both for simple DNA and RNA detection, as well as for more complex analyses of nucleic acid (e. g. , DNA footprin ting, RNA splice site localization). The remaining chapters represent "synthetic," or preparative, uses of PCR.
