Two Hybrid cDNA Cloning

  • Jörg A. Schenk
Part of the Springer Lab Manuals book series (SLM)


The study of molecular interactions is becoming more and more important in all fields of biomedical and biological research. During the past decade, independent systems for large scale studying of such interactions have been developed and made commercially available.
