molcecular biology

This manual is a compilation of many of the everyday methods used in the average molecular biology laboratory, with emphasis on the techniques for large scale DNA sequencing protocols and DNA sequencing automation techniques. The manual has been written in a protocol format, with little theoretical discussion. For theory and additional information, users of this manual are referred back to the original literature, or to other textual manuals such as those published by Maniatis (1) et al. and Glover (2).

The following persons are acknowledged for contributing methods and suggestions during the assembly of this manual: Stephanie Chissoe, Sandy Clifton, Dennis Burian, Rick Wilson, Din-Pow Ma, James Wong, Leslie Johnston-Dow, Elaine Mardis, Zhili Wang, Kala Iyer, Steve Toth, Goughay Zhang, Hua Qin Pan and other members of the Roe laboratory, both past and present.
