Book Details

Recombinant DNA Technology is focussed on the current state of knowledge on the recombinant DNA technology and its applications. The book will provide comprehensive knowledge on the principles and concepts of recombinant DNA technology or genetic engineering, protein expression of cloned genes, PCR amplification of DNA, RFLP, AFLP and DNA fingerprinting and finally the most recent siRNA technology. It can be used by post-graduate students studying and teachers teaching in the area of Molecular Biology, Biotechnology, Genetics, Microbiology, Life Science, Pharmacy, Agriculture and Basic Medical Sciences.
