DNA Science: A First Course in Recombiant DNA Technology by David A. Micklos, Greg A. Freyer

This laboratory text combines the theory, practice, and applications of recombinant DNA technology into one articulated package. Unlike super texts that can only be sampled by even the most ambitious instructor or student, DNA Science is designed to be read from cover to cover. The eight text chapters are written in a semi-journalistic style and adopt a historical perspective to explain where DNA science has come from and where it is going. Combining the unique perspectives of both a research biologist and a science writer, the topical treatment integrates up-to-the-minute examples drawn directly from the research literature.<P>Extensively tested by thousands of high school and college teachers and students in 25 states and Canada, the ten laboratory experiments cover the basic techniques of gene isolation and analysis. The experiments engender systematic repetition to build student confidence and mastery of techniques. Extensive prelab notes at the beginning of each experiment explain how to schedule and prepare, and flowcharts and icons make the protocols easy to follow. The laboratory course is completely supported by quality-assured Carolina Biological Supply Company products -- from bulk reagents, to reusable reagent systems, to single-use kits -- satisfying a range of teaching applications.<P>Truly a first course in recombinant DNA technology, the laboratory sequence presupposes no prior experience on the part of the instructor or student. Structured to follow directly from an introduction to principles of biology, the experiments are equally appropriate for the advanced high school student and the beginning college student. The book can be used as the first course in a molecularbiology sequence, be integrated as a genetics/DNA structure component of a general biology course, or be used as a unit within a microbiology or genetics course. The text is suitable for introducing recombinant DNA in science and society courses.
