This publication, Disease Gene Identification 2nd edition (PDF), provides in-depth laboratory procedures in an easy-to-follow manner. These procedures can be carried out successfully by investigators who have not previously been exposed to a particular research approach. Students are led through the process of applying molecular techniques to the identification of disease genes in a chapter, during which they are also presented with case studies and overviews. Written in the format of the highly successful Methods in Molecular Biology series, the chapters include introductions to their respective topics, step-by-step instructions, lists of the necessary materials and reagents, readily reproducible laboratory protocols, and tips on troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls.
Disease Gene Identification: Methods and Protocols, Second Edition is an authoritative and practical book that intends to help with the identification and characterisation of many more disease-related genes and provide unique and effective strategies for the treatment and prevention of disease.
