Molecular Biological Methods for Bacillus Edited by C. R. Harwood, Department of Microbiology, University of Newcastle upon Tyne, UK and S. M. Cutting, The Biological Laboratories, Harvard University, USA This volume represents the first major attempt to produce a compendium of the experimental methods used for the analysis of Bacillus, one of the most important procaryotic genera. Since the pioneering work on the transformation and genetic analysis of Bacillus subtilis by John Spizizen and his colleagues in the late 1950s this microorganism has been extensively studied and is now one of the best understood. More than forty of the worldas leading researchers in the field have generously contributed experimental proceduresadevised and used in their laboratoriesato this book. The aim throughout has been to present methods as simple step-by-step protocols which have been thoroughly tried and tested. The context in which the methods are used is discussed in detail and relevant information provided on the physiology and genetics of Bacillus. In addition valuable support is provided in the form of troubleshooting tips and advice on safety, the preparation of reagents, and the use of equipment. The book will be invaluable to those working with the genus Bacillus and related generaaboth established researchers and those wishing to use this important microorganism for the first time.
