Summary: David H. Micklos and Greg A. Freyer. 1990. 477 pages. 244 illustrations. Combines the theory, practice, and applications of recombinant DNA technology into one articulated package. Extensively tested by thousands of high school and college teachers and students in 25 states and Canada, the 10 laboratory experiments cover basic techniques of gene isolation and analysis. The experiments use systematic repetition to build student confidence and mastery of techniques. Ex ...show moretensive prelab notes at the beginning of each experiment explain how to schedule and prepare, while flow charts and icons make the protocols easy to follow. The laboratory course is completely supported by quality-assured Carolina products--from bulk reagents, to reusable reagent systems, to single-use kits--satisfying a broad range of teaching applications. Truly a first course in recombinant DNA technology, the laboratory sequence presupposes no prior experience on the part of the instructor or student. Structured to follow directly from an introduction to principles of biology, the experiments are equally appropriate for the advanced high school student and the beginning college student.
