Constructing and Analyzing Recombinant DNA

  • Robert F. Schleif
  • Pieter C. Wensink


This chapter describes a number of procedures commonly used to construct, select, and characterize recombinant DNA. They could, for example, be used to obtain a recombinant DNA clone that contains a particular gene. The procedures are listed in approximately the same order as for a gene cloning project. The exception to this order is that RNA purification methods are grouped at the end of the chapter. Ordering the procedures according to a gene cloning scheme is convenient but somewhat misleading, since the procedures described are useful for many other purposes.
