About this book


DNA repair has assumed a new importance with the discovery that malfunctioning of the DNA repair pathways in humans can lead to many disease states. In DNA Repair Protocols: Prokaryotic Systems, well-versed investigators describe in step-by-step detail a wide range of DNA repair activities, from single act-alone repair proteins to complex repair systems. These practical protocols not only detail the various repair activities found in cells, but also demonstrate the use of DNA repair proteins and systems as reagents in molecular biology and biotechnology. The techniques described here include mutation and polymorphism detection, which are useful in the search for disease genes and drug response genes, as well as for breeding and trait selection in animals and plants. Each readily reproducible protocol is presented by a hands-on expert in sufficient detail to ensure robust experimental results and is supplemented by chapter introductions, as well as notes offering a wealth of interesting and useful information.
Compact and highly practical, DNA Repair Protocols: Prokaryotic Systems provides expert guidance to both the DNA repair researcher studying the fundamental aspects of DNA repair and the applied researcher in human genetics and biotechnology.
