Cancer specialists from a wide range of disciplines seek to encompass the entire spectrum of cancer biology in the two volumes that can serve as stand-along references for both new and experienced researchers. Volume two focuses sharply on determining cell behavior, combining established and familiar techniques such as SDS-PAGE and Western blotting with newer and more specialized approaches and specific examples of their application. The general themes are selecting and segregating cell populations for in-vitro and in-vivo assays of metastatic behavior, in-vitro assays of metastatic behavior, and animal models.
