Guide to Electroporation and Electrofusion is designed to cover all relevant topics pertaining to both electroporation and electrofusion. Divided into four major parts, the book covers fundamental aspects, as well as more advance aspects of the electroporation-electrofusion relationship. The book first covers the basic principles and fundamentals by presenting the most recent theoretical and experimental studies from various fields, such as physics, chemistry, and biology. Next, the book tackles the applications of electroporation and electrofusion in biology, such as transferring, manipulating, and transforming genetic materials. In the third section, the book discusses experimental protocols to serve as a guide when performing experiments using electroporation and electrofusion. The final section discusses the instruments needed to effectively perform an experiment that involves electroporation and electrofusion. This book will be of great used to both novice and advanced researchers whose work involves electroporation and electrofusion, as it provides comprehensive information regarding these topics.
