Lipid Droplets book cover

Lipid Droplets

Methods in Cell Biology

This new volume of Methods in Cell Biology looks at lipid droplets LDs, covering sections on analyses of LDs in model systems, cell/tissue-specific analyses of LDs and imaging and in vitro analyses of LD biogenesis and growth. Chapters are written by experts in the field.

With cutting-edge material, this comprehensive collection is intended to guide researchers of LDs for years to come.
