Real-Time PCR: Current Technology and Applications
Editors: Julie Logan, Kirstin Edwards and Nick Saunders
ISBN: 978-1-904455-39-4
"provides a dual focus by aiming, in the early chapters, to provide both the theory and practicalities of this diverse and superficially simple technology, counter-balancing this in the later chapters with real-world applications, covering infectious diseases, biodefence, molecular haplotyping and food standards." from Microbiology Today
"a reference work that should be found both in university libraries and on the shelves of experienced applications specialists." review from Microbiology Today
