About this book

Avian Influenza Virus, Second Edition aims to provide the essential methods used in working with animal influenza viruses, and to compile more advanced information that will guide the user in designing influenza studies. Influenza A viruses are among the most important pathogens for humans, food animals and companion animals. Research and diagnostics with animal influenza viruses are critical to animal health and it should be recognized that the needs and goals of animal agriculture and veterinary medicine are not always the same as those of public health. This volume sorts out the differences in the structure of the poultry, swine and equine industries, the biological differences of influenza virus from each animal group, and provides host, strain and lineage specific guidance and procedures. Written in the 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 protocols, and notes on troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls.

Authoritative and accessible, Avian Influenza Virus, Second Edition seeks to serve both professionals and novices with its well-honed methodologies in an effort to further our knowledge of these important pathogens.

Reviews

From the book reviews:

“This methodology book presents laboratory protocols for working with animal influenza viruses. … Because it covers a broad spectrum of research, this book is best suited for new students or technicians researching animal influenza viruses or for experienced researchers in one area of animal influenza viruses wishing to work with influenza viruses from other species. … Most sections contain excellent illustrations, photographs, and tables that help readers understand the assays, something that is often lacking in protocol books.” (Elizabeth A. Driskell, Doody’s Book Reviews, September, 2014)
