Never before has there been such a comprehensive book of protocols. This compendium offers a full range of research techniques-from cell culture, to biochemical, to microscopic and genetic. More focused books, like Cold Spring Harbor's Manipulating the Mouse Embryo, are similar though more narrow in scope. This book will appeal to a broad range of researchers, from basic experimental scientists to clinical and animal scientists.

This book applies modern molecular diagnostic techniques to the analysis of single cells, small numbers of cells, or cell extracts. Emphasis is placed on non-invasive analysis of single cell metabolites and the direct analysis of RNA and DNA from single cells, with a focus on polymerase chain reaction and fluorescence in situ hybridization. In particular, this handbook is essential for practitioners providing care for couples seeking treatment for infertility.

Textbook of Assisted Reproductive Techniques has become a classic comprehensive reference for the whole team at the IVF clinic. The fourth edition comes more conveniently as a set of two separate volumes, one for laboratory aspects and the other for clinical applications. The text has been extensively revised, with the addition of several important new contributions on laboratory aspects including developing techniques such as PICSI, IMSI, and time-lapse imaging. The second volume focuses on clinical applications and includes new chapters on lifestyle factors, tailored ovarian stimulation, frozen-thawed embryo transfer, viral disease, and religious perspectives. As before, methods, protocols, and techniques of choice are presented by eminent international experts. The two volume set includes: ■ Volume One - Laboratory Perspectives ■ Volume Two - Clinical Perspectives

A transgenic animal is one that is genetically modified to carry genes from another species. Transgenic species can be raised to carry potentially useful genes from a variety of species. While the topics of genetic engineering and cloning are controversial, the reality is that these technologies offer tremendous benefits to society - from offering a framework for developing and screening medical therapies, to enhancing the safety and nutrition of the food we eat. One potential application of research into transgenic animal technology is the creation of domestic animals genetically designed to express a certain human disease and therefore serve as models for the study and treatment of human illnesses. Although many mouse models of human diseases are available today, such models in large domestic animals physiologically more similar to humans are sparse and critically needed. Further research in this field will undoubtedly uncover many more direct and indirect benefits of this technology. Transgenic animal technologies and the ability to introduce functional genes into animals have revolutionized our ability to address complex biomedical and biological questions. This well-illustrated handbook covers the technical aspects of gene transfer - from molecular methods to whole animal considerations - for important laboratory and domestic animal species. It describes methodologies as employed by leading laboratories and is a key resource for researchers, as well as a tool for training technicians and students. This second edition incorporates updates on a variety of genetic engineering technologies ranging from microinjection and ES cell transfer to nuclear transfer in a broad range of animal modeling systems. Contains a comprehensive collection of transgenic animal and gene transfer methods Discusses background and introduction to techniques and animal systems Teaches practical step-by-step protocols New section on analysis

Mammalian and Avian Transgenesis presents a collection of novel methods for the production of a wide range of transgenic animals. The manual focuses largely on mice, but also contains protocols for successful transgenesis in rats, cows, pigs and birds. The manual provides detailed, step-by-step protocols covering all aspects of the production of transgenic animals, including the use of lentiviral vectors in gene transfer, intracytoplasmic sperm injection, nuclear transfer, large insert transgenesis, conditional gene expression systems, the use of reporter genes in transgenesis and transgenesis in large animals and birds. The text is supplemented by superb color photos. While the focus is on newly established techniques, the fundamental methods of transgenesis are also covered for those new to the field. Thus this manual is perfectly suited for those wishing to adopt new technologies in transgenesis.
