About this book


This book brings together previously fragmented information on new technologies in somatic genome manipulation. These technologies are developing quickly across a broad range of disciplines affecting humans and animals, plants, and microorganisms. This book represents the first attempt to assemble updated reviews, detailed protocols, and far-reaching applications in somatic genome manipulation. The chapters are written by experts on the topic with ready-to-use protocols that were originally developed or adapted from the literature in their laboratories.
