This first title on the topic provides complete coverage, including the molecular basis, production and possible biomedical applications. Written by the most prominent academic researchers in the field as well as by researchers at one of the world's leading companies in industrial production of minicircle DNA, this practical book is aimed at everyone who is directly or indirectly involved in the development of gene therapies.
Autorentext Dr. Martin Schleef studied Biology at the Universities of Wurzburg and Bielefeld, Germany and holds a PhD from the University of Bielefeld. Martin Schleef received post-doctoral training from the Institut Pasteur Paris, France. He joined QIAGEN GmbH, Hilden, Germany in 1994 and is co-founder and CEO of PlasmidFactory in Bielefeld since 2000.
