MORE ABOUT THIS BOOK

Main description:

Over the past decades, knowledge about the cellular and molecular basis underlying the visual process has remarkably increased. In Retinal Degeneration: Methods and Protocols, expert researchers in the field provide a guide of relevant and state-of-the-art methods for studying retinal homeostasis and disease. These include methods and techniques for addressing cell culture systems and animal models of disease, their generation, their phenotypic and molecular characterization as well as their use in therapeutic approaches to the retina. 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, Retinal Degeneration: Methods and Protocols aids scientists in continuing to study the  cutting-edge techniques of retinal cell biology in health and disease.


Feature:

Features a comprehensive overview and detailed lab protocols relevant to retinal homeostasis and disease

Provides step-by-sep detail essential for reproducible results

Contains key notes and implementation advice from the experts
