Herpes Simplex Virus: Methods and Protocols provides a wide collection of protocols employed in various levels of herpes virus
research, including basic protocols on growing viruses in cell culture and cloning, manipulating and preparing viral DNA.
Other chapters describe approaches to design and apply HSV-1 vectors for vaccination, cancer and gene therapy or to study
specific aspects of HSV-1 biology such as latency, intracellular transport and protein-protein interaction. Procedures for
structural analyses, microscopy, proteomics and testing of antivirals are included as well. 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
Practical and authoritative, Herpes Simplex Virus: Methods and Protocols will aid new researchers in
the field of herpes virology as well as those experienced investigators wishing to embark on new techniques.
