The uses of nucleic acid-directed methods have increased significantly in the past five years and have made important contributions to disease control country programmes for improving national and international trade. These developments include the more routine use of PCR as a diagnostic tool in veterinary diagnostic laboratories. There are, however, many problems associated with the transfer and particularly the application of this technology. These include a lack of consideration for the implementation and establishment of quality-assured procedures, the required set-up of the laboratory and the proper training of staff. This book gives a comprehensive account of the practical aspects of PCR and strong consideration is given to ensure its optimal use in a laboratory environment. This includes the theoretical aspects related to PCR, setting-up of a PCR laboratory and good Laboratory Practice and standardised PCR protocols to detect animal disease pathogens. Examples of Standard Operating Procedures as used in individual specialist laboratories and an outline of training materials necessary for PCR technology transfer are presented. The difficulties, advantages and disadvantages in PCR applications are explained and placed in context with other test systems. Emphasis is placed on the use of PCR for detection of pathogens with a particular focus on diagnosticians and scientists from the developing world. It is hoped that this book will enable readers from various disciplines and levels of expertise to better judge the merits of PCR and to increase their skills and knowledge in order to assist in a more logical, efficient and assured use of this technology.Org/Iinks/l.12.php http://www.sacs. ucsf.edu/Links/ BioInfo_Meta.html www. highveld.com www.cellbio.com htq-i: , \v\\\\ .up.
