Susan J. Karcher - Molecular Biology: A Project Approach
1995 | ISBN: 0123977207 | English | 280 pages | PDF | 12.5 MB

This course manual instructs students in recombinant DNA techniques and other essential molecular biology techniques in the context of projects. The project approach inspires and captivates students; it involves them in the scientific experience, providing continuity to laboratory bench time and an understanding of the principles underlying the techniques presented.
Molecular Biology is a must for any department, operating under budgetary constraints that offers or plans to offer a course in molecular cloning.
