How can I find basic or introductory material on e-coli and the x-gal test? (Thode)

Suggested Answer:

We advise that you perform a search in the library catalogue using the terminology Escherichia coli, first in Subject, then if all items are checked out - in Anywhere.  Again, if all items are in use – broaden the search. Try to be less specific:  a Subject search of Microbiology (for e-coli) or a Subject search of Molecular Biology (for x-gal testing).  Use the index of the book(s) to find your terms.  We found x-gal testing and e-coli bacterium information in Basic Methods in Molecular Biology by Davis.
