"The editors...have truly provided an exception information repository on an enormous array of genetic expression-related informaion...there is no other source that provides the reader with such a clear understanding of the possibilities and pitfalls associated with each technique...highly recommended." (SIM News)
"The books is useful as starting points for novices, or a convenient summary of the field for those familiar with this area. The material that is covered is timely and reasonable in scope...this book is a good "one-stop-shopping" summary of this rapidly evolving area." (Cassandra Smith, Boston University, Biomolecular Engineering, November 2004)
"This two-volume book written by a total of 225 authors presents an excellent overview and deep insight into the field of eukariotic gene expression and its analysis." (ChemBioChem, Wolfgang Schumann, Universität Bayreuth)
"Taken all over, this book has the potential to become the encyclopedia of gene expression analysis." (Sabine Kleinsteuber, Engineering in Life Sciences, 2/2004)
"...the text is clear and the illustrations are excellent.... The work will be useful for reference, especially to provide a quick and clear summary of the various techniques for postgraduates, postdocs and older research supervisors." (Simon Baumberg, University of Leeds, Microbiology Today, Vol. 31, November 2004)
