Molecular Approaches to Parasitology (MBL Lectures in Biology)
- Edition: 1
Describes the dramatic advances in the field during the recent past, focusing on the ways in which molecular tools can be used to study the biology of parasites. Reflects the successful transfection of Leishmania, Trypanosoma, Toxoplasma and Plasmodium—a major breakthrough which allowed investigation into a range of new areas. The role of cytokines in immunity to parasites dominates the work on immunology. Also covers entirely new arenas including RNA editing.
