Current Protocols in Cytometry, available online through AECOM's library!
Current Protocols in Cytometry is a "best practices" collection that distills and organizes the absolute latest techniques from the top cytometry labs and specialists worldwide. It is the most complete set of peer-reviewed protocols for flow and image cytometry available. Updated every three months in all formats, Current Protocols in Cytometry is constantly evolving to keep pace with the very latest discoveries and developments. On average, 52% of content is new and 48% has been revised every year since initial publication.
Current Protocols in Immunology, also available online through AECOM's library!
Current Protocols in Immunology is also a "best-practices" collection that provides comprehensive coverage of immunological methods from classic to the most cutting edge: the most sophisticated protocols in immunology today. Updated every three months in all formats, Current Protocols in Immunology is constantly evolving to keep pace with the very latest discoveries and developments. Since the initial publication of the work, 770 pages of content is new (43%) and revised (57%) on average every year! Current Protocols in Immunology covers the latest in antibody detection and preparation, molecular immunology, innate immunity, tumor immunology, engineering immune molecules and receptors, and more; as well as animal models for analyses; offers valuable reference information in five extensive appendices, including commonly used reagents, equipment and techniques; and a full appendix devoted to the CD system of leukocyte surface molecules.
