Clear and concise, this easy-to-use text offers an introductory course on the language of gene cloning, covering microbial, plant, and animal systems. The essential concepts in biology relevant to the understanding of gene cloning are presented in a well-organized and accessible manner.

Consistent with its introductory nature, the book begins by outlining the basic principles of biology and aspects of genetics relevant to the concepts of gene cloning. The next section explores the common techniques and approaches used in gene cloning. The author then discusses various applications in agriculture and food, and in medicine and related areas.

The practical uses of gene cloning are extensively illustrated, with specific examples from the literature to demonstrate how gene cloning is conducted utilizing the concepts developed in previous sections. Review questions at the end of each chapter provide self-testing, allowing the reader to assess their understanding of the materials. With more than 90 illustrations, The ABCs of Gene Cloning is an invaluable book for nonscientists as well as scientists with little background knowledge in gene cloning. It provides a wealth of information for anyone with a desire to gain some proficiency in reading and speaking the language of gene cloning.

The book covers the essential concepts of gene cloning, paying special attention to explaining jargon in simple, easy-to-understand terms. A unique feature of this book is the inclusion of sample applications of gene cloning in food science, nutrition, and biomedicine, making it a much-needed reference for individuals in these fields who lack formal training in this increasing important area. End-of-chapterexercises and reading assignments are presented to facilitate self study.
