About the book
The term molecular cloning refers to the creation of recombinant DNA molecules and promotes progress throughout the life sciences. In the 1970s, with the discovery of restriction and ligase enzymes, recombinant DNA technology has emerged and provided great advances in molecular biology, particularly in DNA manipulation. This technology, which enables detailed molecular studies to understand the structure and functions of genes, allows the researchers to isolate large DNA molecules from different origins, cutting, pasting, reproducing, assembling recognizing, changing their structure, and recovering them to living organisms. The cloning of genes, which has become the standard laboratory technique, has significantly increased the understanding of gene function in recent years. Because of all these advances; in this book, topics including the fundamental of molecular cloning such as tools for molecular cloning, molecular cloning for medicine, molecular cloning for food and feed, molecular cloning for the environment, molecular cloning methods, and the future of molecular cloning will be discussed.
