Ranging from the evolution of pathogenicity to oceanic carbon biking, the numerous and sundry roles that bacteriophages play in microbial ecology and evolution have encouraged elevated curiosity in the medical group. Bacteriophages: tools and Protocols pulls jointly the gigantic physique of data and services from best foreign bacteriophage researchers to supply either classical and cutting-edge molecular innovations. With its well-organized modular layout, Volume 1: Isolation, Characterization, and Interactions examines a large number of themes, together with the isolation of phages, morphological and molecular characterization, and interplay with micro organism. Written within the hugely profitable Methods in Molecular Biology™ sequence structure, chapters include short introductions to the topic, lists of the mandatory fabrics and reagents, without difficulty reproducible laboratory protocols, and a Notes part which information tips about troubleshooting and warding off identified pitfalls.
Thorough and state-of-the-art, Bacteriophages: tools and Protocols is a worthy reference for knowledgeable bacteriophage researchers in addition to an simply obtainable advent for beginners to the subject.
