Advances in Cell Culture, Volume 1 is a compendium of critical reviews in the field of cell culture. The chapters in the book are prepared by recognized authorities in their specialized fields. The text deals with all the aspects of cell culture, which includes the growth of individual cells or cell populations, the growth of small fragments of explanted tissue, the growth of organs, and the growth of obligate parasites in cell culture systems.

This volume contains research papers that discuss vertebrate, invertebrate, and plant cell culture, as well as the cultivation of obligate parasites. The book also focuses on specific topics in cell culture such as the past and future developments in the field of genetic manipulation; evaluation of antiviral compounds in cell cultures with acute or persistent virus infections; propagation of malaria parasites in vitro; regulation of plant organogenesis; and insect cells for insect virus production.

Cell biologists and researchers who use in vitro techniques will find the book highly informative and insightful.
