About this book

This volume details protocols on virus-derived nanoparticles (VNPs) for a number of different applications. Chapters guide readers through the production of  VNPs derived from plant, animal and bacterial viruses, prokaryotic and eukaryotic expression systems,  encapsulation of heterologous materials within VNPs, and the modification of the outer surface of VNPs and how such modified VNPs can be developed into functional entities. 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.

 Authoritative and practical, Virus-Derived Nanoparticles for Advanced Technologies: Methods and Protocols aims to ensure successful results in the further study of this vital field.
