about this item
Immunology has emerged as a key component of the curricula of graduate and postgraduate courses in biotechnology, microbiology, biochemistry, bioinformatics, and other interdisciplinary fields of biology, including zoology, veterinary science, and medicine. The book contains the most recent information about immunologic mechanisms and their importance, along with various molecular techniques employed in immunology. The short and concise text helps make the structures, processes, and interactions of the immune system as easily comprehensible to readers as possible. The book includes chapters on immunoinformatics as well as the immune system of the brain, rarely found in any of the immunology books published earlier. Many diverse and interesting aspects of advancements in immunology have also been covered. Renowned research contributors such as Dr. Tapan K. Mukherjee, Dr. S. Pallikuth, Dr. Sudheesh Pilakka Kanthikeel, and Dr. Verghes K. George have contributed chapters on tumor immunology, the immune system of the brain, and immunodeficiency disorders. This groundbreaking textbook would be the first choice in immunology textbooks the world over. The hallmark of this book is its simple language and easy-to-understand concepts ideal for preparation for competitive and other examinations. Undergraduate, postgraduate, and PhD students, people from industry and academia, and research scholars and the scientific fraternity would be immensely benefitted with the recent updates in the field.
