The Immunology Methods Manual is a four-volume set comprising a comprehensive sourcebook of immunological methods and techniques. Unique in its project-oriented, rather than protocol-oriented approach, the emphasis is placed on describing the environment in which each method was developed and is used. The manual contains both advanced methods and descriptions and basic protocols. It is essential not only for those who study the immune system of man or mouse, but also those applying methods to other species. This new compilation of methods answers the needs of immunologists; molecular, developmental, and cell biologists; students and advanced researchers, and workers in clinical and diagnostic laboratories. Protocols are provided to guide day-to-day laboratory work as well as the development of long-term strategies. Vital contact information also encourages useful dialogue and interaction between authors and method-users.
More than 35 section editors and 350 authors have contributed to compile this four-volume practical guide to methods that work!
