Lowest used price: $2.40
List price: $81.99
Author: T. A. Brown
Brand: Wiley-Blackwell

Known world-wide as the standard introductory text to this important and exciting area, the fifth edition of Gene Cloning and DNA Analysis addresses new and growing areas of research whilst retaining the philosophy of the previous editions. Assuming the reader has little prior knowledge of the subject its importance, the principles of the techniques used and their applications are all carefully laid out, with over 250 clearly presented two-colour illustrations.


In addition to a number of informative changes to the text throughout the book, the final four chapters have been significantly updated and extended to reflect the striking advances made in recent years in the applications of gene cloning and DNA analysis in biotechnology:



  • Extended chapter on agriculture including new material on glyphosate resistant plants
  • New section on the uses of gene cloning and PCR in archaeology
  • Coverage of ethical concerns relating to pharming, gene therapy and GM crops


Gene Cloning and DNA Analysis remains an essential introductory text to a wide range of biological sciences students; including genetics and genomics, molecular biology, biochemistry, immunology and applied biology. It is also a perfect introductory text for any professional needing to learn the basics of the subject. All libraries in universities where medical, life and biological sciences are studied and taught should have copies available on their shelves.

Placenta and Trophoblast: Methods and Protocols, Volume II (Methods in Molecular Medicine)

Placenta and Trophoblast: Methods and Protocols, Volume II (Methods in Molecular Medicine) Lowest new price: $34.35
Lowest used price: $34.98
List price: $259.00
Brand: Brand: Humana Press

The aim of the two-volume set of Placenta and Trophoblast: Methods and Protocols is to offer contemporary approaches for studying the biology of the placenta. The chapters contained herein also address critical features of the female organ within which the embryo is housed, the uterus, and some aspects of the embryo–fetus itself, particularly those of common experimental animal models. In keeping with the organization used effectively in other volumes in this series, each chapter has a brief introduction followed by a list of required items, protocols, and notes designed to help the reader perform the expe- ments without difficulty. In both volumes, sources of supplies are given and illustrations highlight particular techniques as well as expected outcomes. A key aspect of these volumes is that the contributors are at the forefronts of their disciplines, thus ensuring the accuracy and usefulness of the chapters. Placenta research has progressed rapidly over the past several decades by taking advantage of the technical advances made in other fields. For example, the reader will note that many techniques, such as reverse transcriptase po- merase chain reaction, northern and western blotting, microarray analyses and in situ hybridization experiments, are routinely used for dissecting a wide range of experimental questions. Protein analysis and functional experiments on tissues and cells that comprise the maternal–fetal interface benefit from studies in en- crinology, immunology, and developmental biology. These volumes also present new ideas on investigating gene imprinting and gene transfer via viral vectors.

The Biology of Plasmids

The Biology of Plasmids Lowest new price: $57.29
Lowest used price: $3.24
List price: $92.95
Author: David Summers
Brand: Brand: Wiley-Blackwell

Plasmids are closed, circular pieces of DNA that are able to self-replicate and are carried by many bacteria. They provide unique functions for bacteria by allowing them to sexually replicate and to pass on genetic material between each other. Plasmids are also responsible for the genetic factors that give resistance to antibiotics, and provide the enzymes needed to break down poorly metabolised food resources. The author has provided an updated treatment of the structure, function and application of plasmids suitable for undergraduates and medical students. Employing an original teaching perspective--examining plasmids as living organisms with either a symbiotic or parasitic mode of survival--this text provides an important framework for understanding the structure and function of plasmids in an evolutionary context.

  • The most up to date text on plasmids
  • An innovative teaching perspective makes for easy student understanding
  • Contains crucial chapters on the importance of plasmids for clinical and biological research

Biology by Numbers: An Encouragement to Quantitative Thinking

Biology by Numbers: An Encouragement to Quantitative Thinking Lowest new price: $44.26
Lowest used price: $1.99
List price: $62.00
Author: Richard F. Burton
Brand: Brand: Cambridge University Press

This textbook is both an introduction to quantitative biology and a guide for the number-shy. Richard Burton fosters a sense of the fundamental importance and usefulness of mathematical principles in biology, with a fascinating range of examples. The book is geared toward the nonmathematician, and covers the basics as well as various more advanced topics from many diverse biological disciplines. Questions and calculations encourage active participation without holding up the casual reader. A key feature is the structure of the book. Rather than building it around biological disciplines, Dr. Burton emphasizes the common ways of reasoning used in areas as diverse as insect and population growth, seed mortality, and sensory response (to mention a few that use logarithms).
