About this book


In Virus Hybrids as Nanomaterials: Methods and Protocols expert researchers in the field detail many of the methods used to study virus for medial and nonmedical applications.  These include methods and techniques for  genetically engineering viruses for therapeutic purpose and vaccine production, chemically modified viruses for virus-templated nanoparticles production, and genetically engineered or chemically modified viral particles as imaging agents. 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 key tips on troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls.


Authoritative and practical, Virus Hybrids as Nanomaterials: Methods and Protocols seeks to aid new researchers to get involved in this multidisciplinary area.
