Main Description
Laboratory courses appropriate for this lab manual include those at the Bachelors level and would also be ideal for a laboratory course for students pursuing Masters or PhD degrees. The text is also ideal for courses in any other specialized degree that requires, basic knowledge of techniques in molecular biology (e.g. biotechnology, forensic medicine, molecular medicine). This text can also be adapted for use at the junior college level or the advanced high school level. The book also stands alone as a fine addition to any research laboratory as a reference work in Laboratory Molecular Biology
