Recombinant DNA techniques have revolutionized the isolation and production of antibodies in recent years, and rapid changes have been made. This new Practical Approach book details protocols which allow the researcher to isolate a new antibody, analyse its properties, format the rightantibody molecule or fragment, and produce it in usable quantities.
John McCafferty, Hennie Hoogenboom, and David J. Chiswell are all at Cambridge Antibody Technology Limited.

Editorial Reviews

`This book is very useful for practising antibody engineers, providing extra information that enables them to adopt new techniques or expand into new areas. ... this is a useful and interesting resource for practising antibody engineers and I will make sure my students have access to it.'SGM Quarterly, August 1997
