Research into old DNA all started greater than 25 years in the past with the booklet of brief mitochondrial DNA series fragments from the quagga, an extinct relative of the zebra. historic DNA study fairly received momentum following the discovery of PCR, which allowed thousands of copies to be made from the few closing DNA molecules preserved in fossils and museum specimens. In Ancient DNA: tools and Protocols specialist researchers within the box describe the various protocols which are now accepted to check historic DNA. those comprise directions for establishing an old DNA laboratory, extraction protocols for quite a lot of various substrates, information of laboratory recommendations together with PCR and NGS library instruction, and proposals for acceptable analytical ways to make feel of the sequences bought. Written within the hugely profitable Methods in Molecular Biology™ sequence layout, chapters comprise introductions to their respective issues, lists of the mandatory fabrics and reagents, step by step, effectively reproducible laboratory protocols, and key tips about troubleshooting and heading off recognized pitfalls.

Authoritative and functional, Ancient DNA: tools and Protocols seeks to help scientists within the extra research of historical DNA and the methodological techniques in historic research.
