About this item
This volume details the most important methods used for studying prokaryotic non-coding RNAs and their protein accomplices. Chapters present methods in sections covering different aspects of the biology of that field: identification of ncRNAs, their differential expression, characterization of their structure, abundance, intracellular location and function, their interaction with RNA binding proteins, and plausible applications of ncRNA elements in the rapidly emerging field of synthetic biology. Written in the highly successful Methods in Molecular Biology series format, chapters include introductions to their respective topics, lists of the necessary materials and reagents, step-by-step, readily reproducible laboratory protocols, and tips on troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls.
Authoritative and cutting-edge, Bacterial Regulatory RNA: Methods and Protocols serves as a guidebook for scientists working toward the development of new tools and procedures for the vital field of sRNA biology.
