Excerpts from Book Reviews

PCR Troubleshooting and Optimization: The Essential Guide
"a comprehensive selection of the most recently developed applications ... an essential book for investigators using PCR technology ... a well-balanced book ... It also provides a number of updated strategies for investigators interested in incorporating this technique in their research. The presentation is straightforward and is based on proven examples. The book should prove to be a valuable tool to all those interested in PCR technology." from Ruben Mestril (Loyola University Medical Center, USA) writing in Doodys read more ...

"The information is wholesome and appears to target both students and scientists knowledgeable in molecular applications. The comprehensive and comprehendible content indeed qualifies the text as an essential guide to the development, optimization and toubleshooting of PCR assays." from Christopher J. McIver writing in Aus. J. Med. Sci. (2011) 32: 68 read more ...
