    'An easy to follow narrative, accompanied by simple, clear diagrams, provides the interested student with the background needed … the book, therefore, fills an important niche and should be brought to the attention of upper-level undergraduate students and beginning graduate students in any branch of biology that makes use of molecular techniques.' ASM News
