About this book


In HIV Protocols, Nelson Michael and Jerome Kim have organized a collection of cutting-edge techniques essential for studying the molecular biology, virology, and immunology of the HIV virus. The methods cover a broad range of research interests, including quantitation of viral genomes, HIV promoter function, B-cell epitope mapping, viral coreceptor usage, and measurements of T-cell function. Special emphasis is accorded to the study of those viral and host immune responses to infection that will be critical to the design of effective preventive vaccines.
HIV Protocols is the first HIV methods book to concentrate equally on virology, molecular biology, and immunology, as well as to incorporate methods on chemokine receptor structure and function. Comprehensive and state-of-the-art, the techniques detailed here provide an indispensable framework for unraveling the molecular and immunological aspects of HIV infection.
