About this book

Recombinant DNA techniques have revolutionized the isolation and production of antibodies in recent years, and rapid changes have been made. This new Practical Approach book details protocols which allow the researcher to isolate a new antibody, analyse its properties, format the right antibody molecule or fragment, and produce it in usable quantities.

This resource is highly recommended for libraries and bookstores of academic, medical technology, and pharmaceutical institutions.--Doody's Health Sciences Book Review Home Page
