AbstractReviews en technical approach. Because chapters necessarily overlap in some aspects (e.g., DNA analysis), there ofMolecular Systematics, second edition.âDavid M. ten are protocols for the same experimental procedure Hillis, Craig Moritz, and Barbara K. Mable (eds.). included in more than one chapter (e.g., DNA isolation 1996. Sinauer, Sunderland, Massachsetts. 655 pp. protocols in chapters 6, 7, 8, and 9). Because each chapter is written by different reseachers, often with $49.95 (paper). their own twist on common protocols, it is worthwhile for readers interested in protocols to shop Like its predecessor, the second edition of Molecular around among these chapters. A minor criticism with Systematics is an impressive compilation of theory and respect to protocols is that some detailed protocols are methods and review of the field of molecular system- given for the use of manufactured devices for a proatics as it exists at the time of publication.

I would prefer to see the second edition is similar to the first, except for the detailed protocols for more cost-effective, but laboraddition of a new chapter devoted to the polymerase intensive, alternatives, followed by the description of chain reaction (PCR) and the removal of
