Immunology of Infection

Edited by

  • Stefan Kaufmann, Max Planck Institute for Infection Biology, Berlin, Germany
  • Dieter Kabelitz, University of Kiel, Germany

Immunology of Infection, edited by two of the foremost figures in the field, presents the most appropriate, up-to-date techniques in the detail you require. The layout is structured for ease of reference, and the volume will be essential reading for all researchers working in microbiology, immunology, virology, mycology, and parasitology.The new volume provides a carefully selected collection of immunological techniques for the microbiologist wishing to study host-pathogen relationships in vivo and in vitro. This multi-authored book has succeeded in bringing together experts from various fields of molecular and cellular immunology who provide ready-to-use recipes for the ex vivo and in vitro analysis of anti-infective immunity.
