About this book

Experts present methods and protocols essential for understanding parasites at the molecular level. The protocols cover culturing techniques for the major experimental organisms, methods for isolating and processing nucleic acids and proteins, PCR-based protocols for parasite identification, gene isolation and mutation, antibody-based procedures, chromosome and epitope mapping, flow cytometry, RNA sequencing, and parasite transformation.

...well-written and thoughtfully assembled...will be welcomed by recent arrivals...and regularly utilized by instructors of future investigators. - Analytical Biochemistry
