Virology : A Laboratory Manual
"Virology: A Laboratory Manual" is designed for a one-semester virology laboratory course, although more than one semester of exercises are included. Choices of experiments allow for flexibility within a sequentially organized framework. The text features detailed experimental protocols with sections on materials and preparations for all exercises, plus introductory material, discussion questions and further reading. The use of few viruses and cell lines provides continuity and simplifies preparation of the laboratory exercises. An "Instructor's Manual" is available to give alternatives and assistance in laboratory set-up.
