The first edition of this book, published in 1999 and called DNA Repair Protocols: Eukaryotic Systems, brought together laboratory-based methods for studying DNA damage and repair in diverse eukaryotes: namely, two kinds of yeast, a nematode, a fruit fly, a toad, three different plants, and human and murine cells. This second edition of DNA Repair Protocols covers mammalian cells only and hence its new subtitle, Mammalian Systems. There are two reasons for this fresh emphasis, both of them pragmatic: to cater to the interests of what is now a largely mammalocentric DNA repair field, and to expedite editing and prod- tion of this volume. Although DNA Repair Protocols: Mammalian Systems is a smaller book than its predecessor, it actually contains a greater variety of methods. Fourteen of the book's thirty-two chapters are entirely new and areas of redundancy present in the first edition have been eliminated here (for example, now just two chapters describe assays for nucleotide excision repair [NER], rather than seven). All eighteen returning chapters have been revised, many of them ext- sively. In order to maintain a coherent arrangement of topics, the four-part p- titioning seen in the first edition was dispensed with and chapters concerned with ionizing radiation damage and DNA strand breakage and repair were re- cated to near the front of the book. Finally, an abstract now heads each chapter.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"...It will serve as an essential reference for both the practical and theoretical aspects of DNA repair studies, encourage the transfer of methodologies between model systems, and stimulate the development of new approaches." - Anticancer Research

"...must for any science library supporting a molecular biology program." - E-Streams

"An informative collection of techniques and protocols for characterizing and utilizing DNA repair activities and enzymes from some of the leading names in DNA repair field. This collection of protocols is ideal for both the novice in the field and to the experienced applied researcher." - Lavoisier Librairie

"...an extremely useful resource for any laboratory with an interest in the vibrant field of DNA repair. Any good laboratory manueal should be not only a useful reference guide but also a source of inspiration, and it is undoubtedly true that DNA Repair Protocols: Mammalian Systems succeeds on both counts." -Int. J. Radiation Oncology Biol. Phys.

"This is the definite book on the subject not only for those working in the field of DNA repair but also for those interested in genetic toxicology and chemical safety." -BTS Newsletter
