"The purpose of this volume is to give recombinant DNA researchers the most up-to-date knowledge about heterologous gene expression in four commonly employed organisms: Escherichia coli, Bacillus subtilis, yeast, and mammalian cells....This synthesis of theory and practice has, in general, been skillfully done, making this volume most worthwhile for students and researchers in this area. Expert coverage in each of the four organisms ensures that the knowledge and advice given in each area is first rate....This volume should prove invaluable to investigators with a molecular biology background who need to express a given gene, but are not particularly experienced in this area. Many of the contributors have been able to effectively communicate years worth of experience and unpublished observations in what often was a black magic science. This volume clearly shows that things have changed and that the methodology is now in the hands of the skilled non-expert."
--AMERICAN JOURNAL OF PHYSIOLOGY
"The volume is very successful...I strongly recommend this book both to novices who are embarking on a gene expression project for the first time and to frustrated veterans who are seeking the latest 'tips' about how to improve the expression of their favourite proteins."
--TRENDS IN GENETICS
"This volume presents an extremely valuable collection of methods for expression of cloned genes...This volume fills an important void in the scientific literature. It is designed to be an integrated treatment of expression systems rather than a collection of relevant papers. In most respects it accomplishes that goal admirably and it provides an invaluable resource that should be present in any laboratory interested in manipulating gene expression."
"This work is essential for the experienced worker or novice who having cloned his gene wishes to express it."
