This book imparts an enriching experience to the readers by providing extensive information about the techniques in biotechnology. The fundamentals in this book are critical to the success of researchers and students alike. This book covers techniques of DNA isolation, nucleic acid hybridization, RNA isolation, PCR, molecular marker techniques, Immunotechniques, spectroscopy and other techniques applied in biotechnology. The book not only provides the protocols for various techniques but also gives theoretical information regarding it. The principle and working of each technique clarifies the concepts and enhances understanding of the subject. Step-by-step protocols are provided along with preparations of solutions and buffers. Numerous illustrations and diagrammatic representations of the protocol add pictorial value to the theoretical explanation. Troubleshooting guide is an invaluable tool and unique feature of this book, which will help researchers in avoiding pitfalls and obtaining targeted results. Review questions at the end of each chapter, is one more reader friendly unique feature, which will be useful for the teachers, students and researchers alike. The topics covered in this book are in accordance with the postgraduate syllabi of UGC recognized universities and institutions. This book will also be helpful for those who are preparing for competitive exams like NET, JRF, GATE, SET, SRF etc., and for the ones who are engaged in biotechnology research.
