Featured eBook: New 2011 Springer Protocols

“SpringerProtocols is the largest subscription-based electronic database of reproducible laboratory protocols in the Life and Biomedical Sciences. Written by renowned experts in the field with an emphasis on both comprehensiveness and ease of use, each protocol is organized in an easily reproducible recipe style, and offering helpful tricks of the trade in an invaluable “notes” section, SpringerProtocols is an invaluable resource for the modern research laboratory.”

Transgenic Mouse Methods and Protocols
Editors: Martin H. Hofker & Jan M. van Deursen
“This book can be roughly divided into three parts: a general introduction describing how to deal with mice and how to generate transgenic mouse models; a part describing the generation of conditional and induced knockout and transgenic mice, and a final section offering alternative routes to study gene function in mice.”

Cell-Based Microarrays : Methods and Protocols
Editor: Ella Palmer
“Cell-based microarrays can be used for a variety of high-throughput, downstream functional assays. This book is intended for molecular biologists, geneticists, immunologists, and biochemists. It provides an easy-to-use, up-to-date, and comprehensive set of protocols on every aspect of cell-based microarrays.”

RNA : Methods and Protocols
Editor: Henrik Nielsen
“This book is about the procedures and methods that are used to describe the structure of the messenger RNAs and non-coding RNAs that are transcribed as the immediate gene products by RNA polymerase II in mammalian cells. It is focused on the structure of the RNA products of gene X and mapping of the proteins associated with these RNAs.”

DNA Damage Detection In Situ, Ex Vivo, and In Vivo : Methods and Protocols
Editor: Vladimir V. Didenko
“This volume presents all major assays used in molecular and cell biology for the labeling of DNA damage in situ, ex vivo, and in vivo. It brings together recently introduced techniques, as well as those established earlier, which detect and quantify DNA damage at the scales ranging from subcellular to the level of a whole, living organism.”
