Guide to designing and running research projects involving large-scale molecular cloning methods, expression analysis, disease study, and clinical genetics. Includes methods in all areas of genetic research, including genetic linkage analysis, bioinformatics and internet tools, gene cloning, cytogenetics, and diagnostics. Offers basic to sophisticated methods, most equally applicable to other eukaryotic organisms, such as the mouse. Provides appendices including "Commonly Used Techniques" (molecular biology and cell culture methods, plus statistics basics), "Chromosome Karyotyping and Idiograms", and "Genetic Linkage Reference Maps."
