This detailed book serves as a laboratory manual containing vital protocols and in-depth discussion involving commonly used experimental approaches for the characterization of several aspects of lung tumor biology. Beginning with an extensive section on biomarker detection, the volume continues with chapters on the genetic and molecular characterization of lung cancer biological samples as well as protocols for the generation of research tools and pre-clinical lung cancer models. Written for the highly successful Methods in Molecular Biology series, chapters include introductions to their respective topics, lists of the necessary materials and reagents, step-by-step, readily reproducible protocols, and tips on troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls. Authoritative and practical, Lung Cancer: Methods and Protocols provides a global perspective of research efforts related to lung cancer, while allowing researchers to experimentally probe the different aspects of lung cancer research, including the experimentally relevant tests used in the establishment of lung cancer diagnosis and prognosis, in their laboratories.
