About this book


This volume explores the rapidly evolving field of HLA typing and its use in both the laboratory setting and in silico methods. The chapters in this book discuss high-throughput methods for HLA typing; wet lab protocols; microarray data and its uses; in silico tools for the identification of HLA alleles from DNA and RNA next-generation-sequencing data, as well as HLA haplotype frequency estimation. Written in the highly successful Methods in Molecular Biology series format, chapters include introductions to their respective topics, lists of the necessary materials and reagents, step-by-step, readily reproducible laboratory protocols, and tips on troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls.

Cutting-edge and practical, HLA Typing: Methods and Protocols is a valuable resource for any researcher interested in learning more about this developing field.
