Application of DNA technology to the identification of disease-causing mutations has become widespread in recent years. PCR Mutation Detection Protocols, provides biological and clinical investigators with a comprehensive collection of new, recent, and updated PCR-based screening methods suitable for detecting the presence of both known and novel mutations. The methods cover point mutations (e.g., ASO-PCR, SSCP, DGGE, chemical cleavage), deletions (multiplex PCR, FISH, blotting), non-sense mutations (PTT), and more. The new and exciting techniques of DNA array analysis, along with such recently developed experimental methods as conformation-sensitive gel electrophoresis, are also included. Additional coverage is given to the direct use of DNA sequencing as a detection method in its own right and to the characterization of mutations previously located by other screening techniques. Each chapter explains the basic theory behind the technique and provides valuable notes essential for its successful execution. Comprehensive and highly practical, PCR Mutation Detection Protocols assures both seasoned and novice investigators access to the highly productive and readily reproducible PCR-based mutation detection methods, techniques that are laying the groundwork for many of today's major scientific and medical advances

In Medical Biomethods Handbook, John Walker and Ralph Rapley have collected a wide-ranging group of molecular and biochemical techniques that are the most frequently used in medical and clinical research, especially diagnostics. The authors - well-established investigators who run their own research programs and use the methods on a regular basis - outline the practical procedures for using them and describe a variety of pertinent applications. Among the technologies presented are Southern and Western blotting, electrophoresis, PCR, cDNA and protein microarrays, liquid chromatography, in situ hybridization, karyotyping, flow cytometry, bioinformatics, genomics, and ribotyping. The applications include assays for mutation detection, mRNA analysis, chromosome translocations, inborn errors of metabolism, protein therapeutics, and gene therapy."

Molecular forensics by Ralph Rapley( Book )

10 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 435 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Molecular Forensics offers comprehensive coverage of the increasingly important role molecular analysis plays within forensic science. Starting with a broad introduction to modern forensic molecular technologies, the text covers key issues from the initial scenes of crime sampling to the use of evidential material in the prosecution of legal cases. The book also explores the questions raised by the growing debate on the applications of national DNA databases and the resulting challenges of developing, maintaining and curating such vast data structures. The broader range of applications to non-human cases is also discussed, as are the statistical pitfalls of using so called unique data such as DNA profiles and the ethical considerations of national DNA databases. This book is an invaluable reference work for students taking courses within the Forensic and Biomedical sciences. It is also useful for practitioners in the field looking for a broad overview of the subject
