xi, 226 pages : illustrations (some color) ; 26 cm.


Summary note
This volume aims to help new investigators to the field by providing them with the protocols needed to set up clinically relevant animal models of fungal infection, as well as methods for in vivo immunology.Written in the format of the highly successful Methods in Molecular Biology series, each chapter includes an introduction to the topic, lists necessary materials and methods, includes tips on troubleshooting and known pitfalls, and step-by-step, readily reproducible protocols. Authoritative and cutting-edge, Antifungal Immunity: Methods and Protocols aims to be comprehensive guide for researchers in the field.
