By M. P. O’Connell, U. Priefer, N. Datta, M. E. Nugent (auth.), Alfred Pühler, Kenneth N. Timmis (eds.)

The improvement of robust new concepts and refmements of tech­ niques in molecular genetics lately, and the surge in curiosity in biotechnology in response to genetic tools, have heralded a brand new golden age in molecular genetics, and inspired in various disciplines a lot curiosity within the applied sciences themselves and their capability makes use of in uncomplicated and utilized biomedical sciences. even though a few first-class expert laboratory manuals (especially the chilly Spring Harbor Laboratory manuals by way of I. H. Miller; R. W. Davies et al. ; and T. Maniatis et al. ) on definite chapters of molecular genetics exist, no normal textual content that covers a huge spectrum of the sub­ ject has so far been released. the aim of this handbook is to pre­ despatched such a lot, notwithstanding of necessity no longer the entire very important tools of molecular genetics, in a chain of straightforward experiments, lots of that are effortlessly entire via the microbiologist, biochemist or biotechnologist that has had simply constrained publicity to genetics. the rest of the experiments require both higher familiarity with the topic, or advice through somebody with such adventure. The publication may still, for this reason, not just allow members to obtain new proce­ dures for ongoing initiatives, but in addition function a foundation for the instructing of molecular genetic concepts in formal predoctoral and postdoctoral laboratory courses.

Since gel electrophoresis has found application in the analysis of DNA, it is possible to use this method for molecular weight determinations of purified DNA. 4 X 106 to 10 X 106 daltons were related inversely to the logarithm of their molecular weights. In addition, they observed that in every case open circular molecules migrated considerably slower than covalently closed circles, whereas the mobility of linear DNA largely depended on the conditions employed (the higher the gel concentration, the faster the linear DNA in proportion to closed circles).

The fertility plasmid F was found to be responsible for this conjugation process. Using Hfr-strains, where the F plasmid is integrated into the chromosome, crosses could be carried out that helped to map the E. coli chromosome. Due to lack of suitable conjugation systems, many bacterial strains of scientifIc or commercial importance could not be analyzed.
