About this book

Given the vital importance of immune system research, the gathering of clear, consistent, and informative protocols involving the study of dendritic cells is paramount. Bringing the popular first edition fully up to date, this volume presents protocols from experts in the field that cover the basics and more complex forays into the exploration of DC development and function, both in mice and humans.
