The approaches described in this volume are state-of-the-art and may be tailored to ongoing individual or planned research projects. The text will be of interest to molecular biologists, geneticists, cell biologists, and biochemists involved in studying genes associated with and regulating important physiological processes. This volume will serve as a valuable laboratory resource for designing experiments to identify and analyze genes that are relevant to complex biological phenomena.
