Isozymes detectable on electrophoretic gels remain the most practical gene markers used to solve various problems in biology. The second edition of this bestselling book covers important applications of isozymes that have surfaced since the publication of the first edition. Presenting 100 zymogram techniques, the book also includes new information concerning /enzyme electrophoresis, genetic interpretation of zymograms, and application of isozymes. Enzyme electrophoresis is a powerful tool with far-reaching applications in fields such as evolutionary genetics, biochemical systematics, enzymology and isozymology, plant and animal genetics and breeding, fisheries management, diagnostic medicine and genetic consultation, forensic science, and new fields of postgenomic biology, e.g. in proteomics. In one convenient source, this book provides access to more than 900 zymogram techniques and 400 detectable enzymes.
