by Sandy B. Primrose,R. W. Old

As in past editions, the basic philosophy of this extremely popular text is to present the principles and techniques of gene manipulation in sufficient detail to enable the non-specialist to understand them. However, in the three years since the previous edition, molecular biology has seen a dramatic increase in available techniques and applications. Every chapter in this new edition has been extensively revised or rewritten to take these developments into account - including a vastly expanded section on the polymerase chain reaction and its manifold applications, a new chapter examining the impact of recombinant DNA techniques on our understanding of human genetics, and extended coverage of gene transfer techniques.

This certainly isn't up to date, but for someone looking to explore and understand the basics of molecular biology and understand a bit of the history, this is a great book. It is very understandable, yet it goes into much more depth than newer books of similar topics. For a good foundation in molecular biology, this is a good place to start.
i am doing Ph.D. in molecular biology and this book is very useful in the cloning and genetic engineering portion. i read this book from the library. it is the bible of genetic engineering and great text book for the gives a comprehensive study with minute details and recent advances. overall worth purchasing.
