Description

Human tumor cells in culture are valuable for studying cancer causes and properties. This convenient reference provides useful information for cancer researchers on commonly used, established tumor cell lines of the major human organ systems. Atlas of Human Tumor Cell Lines includes data about morphological, metabolic, genetic, and growth characteristics of human tumor cells, with morphological characteristics presented in more than 250 photomicrographs. It also contains information for establishing and maintaining human tumor cell lines in culture, and each chapter covers future perspectives.
