PCR Primer Design, Principles of Developmental Genetics


PCR Primer Design
Edited by Anton Yuryev

In this technical guide, editor Anton Yuryev from Ariadne Genomics rounds up detailed protocols for designing the proper PCR primers for nearly every type of PCR-based experiment. Each chapter focuses on different aspects of primer design, from physical principles to statistical modeling of primers and from Web-based, high-throughput primer design to primers for multiplexed genotyping. Contributors include researchers from Washington University in St. Louis, the Hungarian Academy of Sciences, and Flanders Interuniversity Institute for Biotechnology, among many others.

Principles of Developmental Genetics
Edited by Sally A. Moody

In this textbook, editor Sally Moody of George Washington University and the other contributors cover how new technologies, such as microarrays and functional genomics, affect research in the field of developmental genetics as well as the continuing roles of more traditional approaches to developmental biology, including embryology and cell movements. Among the contributors are scientists from the University of North Carolina, Columbia University, the Fox Chase Cancer Center, and other universities, institutes, and companies.
