About this book

This volume provides an overview of molecular biology tools for pathogen detection and characterization. Focusing on biobanking, biosafety,  good laboratory practices, biological specimen collection and processing, quality assurance and control, validation of molecular diagnostic assays for veterinary use; molecular detection and identification of animal pathogens using a wide range of established techniques and covering, also, emerging diagnosis approaches; genotyping tools for assessing the genetic landscape and epidemiology of pathogens; and integrative omics and high-throughput technologies as powerful research tools. 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, Veterinary Infection Biology: Molecular Diagnostics and High-Throughput Strategies aids scientists in continuing to study a broad range of molecular approaches, from simple and affordable to emerging and sophisticate.

Reviews

From the book reviews:

“This is an overview of molecular biology techniques for the detection of pathological states in animals. … The audience includes doctors, laboratory technicians, researchers, and students of veterinary medicine and science. … This is a nicely written, clinically relevant, cutting-edge book that gives a thorough overview of numerous molecular biology techniques for the detection of pathological diseases.” (Maureen McMichael, Doody's Book Reviews, March, 2015)
