About this book


This volume covers multidisciplinary approaches on various aspects of Chikungunya Virus (CHIKV) research that was brought together from leading laboratories across the globe. Topics covered include techniques in clinical and diagnostic virology, basic protocols in cell and virus culture, bioinformatics, and proteomics approaches in cellular response studies. Chikungunya Virus: Methods and Protocols also discusses methods in immunology and animal model studies, as well as different strategies of antivirals and vaccine development for therapeutics against CHIKV infection. Written in the highly successful Methods in Molecular Biology series format, chapters include introductions to their respective topics, lists of the necessary material and reagents, step-by-step, readily reproducible laboratory protocols, and tips on troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls.

Thorough and practical, Chikungunya Virus: Methods and Protocols is a useful and comprehensive resource for CHIKV researchers and anyone interested in learning more about the Chikungunya Virus.
