About this product
- DescriptionThis first book on the market covers the many new and important RNA species discovered over the past five years, explaining current methods for the enrichment, separation and purification of these vel RNAs. Building up from general principles of RNA biochemistry and biophysics, this book addresses the practical aspects relevant to the laboratory researcher throughout, while discussing the performance and potential problems of the methods discussed. An appendix contains a glossary with the important terms and techniques used in RNA analysis. By explaining the basic and working principles of the methods, the book allows biochemists and molecular biologists to gain much more expertise than by simply repeating a pre-formulated protocol, enabling them to select the procedure and materials best suited to the RNA analysis task at hand. As a result, they will be able to develop new protocols where needed and optimize and fine-tune the general purpose standard protocols that come with the purification equipment and instrumentation.
- Author BiographyDouglas Gjerde received his PhD in analytical chemistry from Iowa State University (USA). After having worked in large and small companies for a number of years, Dr. Gjerde founded Sarasep (now merged into Transgenomic) in 1990 for the production and commercialization of nucleic acid separation technologies. He has authored and coauthored numerous articles and 4 books and holds nearly fifty patents in separation science. Lee Hoang is a graduate of the University of California, Santa Cruz (USA) where he obtained a Ph.D. in Molecular Biology in 2006. He is now an applications scientist at PhyNexus in San Jose, a company specializing on protein purification that was founded by Douglas Gjerde. David Hornby studied biochemistry at the University of Sheffield (UK). Since 1999 he is a full professor for Molecular Biology and Biotechnology at the same institution. He has also co-founded two start-up companies (Invector and Protealysis), based on novel technologies for RNA separation and stabilisation, for which he holds the patents. His current research focuses on RNAi biochemistry and proteomics technologies.
