Adenovirus Methods and Protocols, Second Edition, now in two volumes, is an essential resource for adenovirus (Ad) researchers beginning in the field, and an inspirational starting point for researchers looking to branch into new areas of Ad study. In addition to updating and expanding important chapters from the first edition, the authors have added new chapters that address innovative, exciting areas of emphasis in Ad research, including Ad vector construction and use, real-time PCR, use of new animal models, and methods for quantification of Ad virus or virus expression/interactions. The protocols presented are written by trendsetting more

Review quote

"...recommend it to investigators working in the area of viral-host interactions." -Doody's Book Review, Weighted Numerical Score: 70 - 3 Stars Reviews of the First edition: "This book caters quite well to those who simply want to grow adenoviruses, assay them, and use them. . .a very comprehensive methods book that will be a laboratory standard for years to come."- Microbiology Today ". . .this book constitutes an excellent reference text . . .this book is replete with useful information for both the virologist and the non-virologist who is interested in working with adenoviruses."-FEBS Lettersshow more
