This second edition volume delivers updated and new chapters on xenotransplantation covering a variety of methods. Despite many technological challenges faced by the xenotransplantation field, many major advances have been made in the last three decades. Expert researchers provide characterizations of xenogeneic interactions at the cellular and molecular levels, detailed descriptions of complex transplantation models, as well as attractive new tools for further advancement including 3D cell-culturing systems and genomic editing. 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. Thorough and intuitive, Xenotransplantation: Methods and Protocol, Second Edition aids scientists in continuing to study xenotransplantation and its multiple aspects.
