Description

Immunology of Infection, 3e, edited by two leading experts in the field, presents the most appropriate up-to-date experimental approaches in the detail required for modern microbiological research. Focusing on the methods most useful for the microbiologist interested in analyzing host-pathogen relationships, this volume will be essential reading for all researchers working in microbiology, immunology, virology, mycology and parasitology.

This new edition of Immunology of Infection provides ready-to-use "recipes" and the latest emerging techniques as well as novel approaches to the tried and tested, established methods included in the successful first edition.

Methods in Microbiology is the most prestigious series devoted to techniques and methodology in the field. Established for over 30 years, Methods in Microbiology will continue to provide you with tried and tested, cutting-edge protocols to directly benefit your research.

Readership

Microbiologists, immunologists, virologists, mycologists, and parasitologists
