About this book


This volume provides various techniques and methodologies currently used in the study of MERS-CoV. Chapters are divided into four parts detailing evolution and entry of MERS-coronavirus, genetic alteration and structural determination of MERS-coronavirus proteins, quantitation of virus and anti-viral factors, and mouse models for MERS -coronavirus.   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 cutting-edge, MERS Coronavirus: Methods and Protocols aims to ensure successful results in the further study of this vital field.
