About this book

This detailed volume compiles the best methodologies and experimental techniques to profile and extract maximal data from brain tumor stem cells (BTSCs), the experimental paradigm for brain cancer research that offers insights into cancer stem cell populations that may drive not only tumor initiation but tumor recurrence and patient relapse. The BTSC model recapitulates scientific observations made in brain cancer patients, and these chapters provide the reader with a comprehensive understanding of the skills and techniques that will unlock data from this most informative subset of cells. Written for the highly successful Methods in Molecular Biology series, 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, Brain Tumor Stem Cells: Methods and Protocols serves as an ideal guide for researchers seeking to better understand the complexities of brain cancer.

Reviews

“Sheila K. Singh and Chitra Venugopal have developed a concise, systematic, and practical book; an ideal read for brain cancer researchers. … this book is recommended for anyone who strives for proficiency in biophysiology of cancer stem cells and hopes to discover novel therapeutic and treatment strategies for patients affected by devastating CNS disease.” (Angela M. Bohnen, Neurosurgery, Vol. 85 (4), October, 2019)
