By Tara L. Fulton (auth.), Beth Shapiro, Michael Hofreiter (eds.)

Research into historic DNA started greater than 25 years in the past with the book of brief mitochondrial DNA series fragments from the quagga, an extinct relative of the zebra. historic DNA examine particularly received momentum following the discovery of PCR, which allowed thousands of copies to be made up of the few ultimate DNA molecules preserved in fossils and museum specimens. In Ancient DNA: tools and Protocols specialist researchers within the box describe a number of the protocols which are now widely used to review old DNA. those comprise directions for establishing an old DNA laboratory, extraction protocols for quite a lot of various substrates, information of laboratory recommendations together with PCR and NGS library guidance, and recommendations for acceptable analytical ways to make experience of the sequences received. Written within the hugely profitable Methods in Molecular Biology™ sequence structure, chapters contain introductions to their respective subject matters, lists of the required fabrics and reagents, step by step, with ease reproducible laboratory protocols, and key tips about troubleshooting and warding off recognized pitfalls.

Authoritative and functional, Ancient DNA: equipment and Protocols seeks to assist scientists within the additional research of old DNA and the methodological techniques in historical research.
