Following the considerable success of the first edition of Plant Virology Protocols, this exciting new edition covers the many new techniques that are now applied to the examination and understanding of plant viruses. Each section presents the most novel methods and step-by-step reproducible laboratory protocols to allow researchers more effective approaches to study plant viruses. This updated book will prove indispensable to laboratory investigators studying plant viruses.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
From the reviews of the second edition:

"This book describes a wide range of techniques on the molecular analyses of plant viruses and some of their interactions with their hosts. Many techniques could also be of interest to scientists studying animal and bacterial viruses. … this book should be of great use to virology researchers who take the correct approach." (Roger Hull, Microbiology Today, February, 2009)
