The discovery of Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) by Epstein, Achong, and Barr, reported in 1964 (Lancet 1:702-703), was stimulated by Denis Burkitt's rec- nition of a novel African childhood lymphoma and his postulation that an infectious agent was involved in the tumor's etiology (Nature194:232-234, 1962). Since then, molecular and cellular biological and computational technologies have progressed by leaps and bounds. The advent of recombinant DNA technology opened the possibilities of genetic research more than most would have realized. Not only have the molecular tools permitted the analyses of viral mechanisms, but, importantly, they have formed the basis for discerning viral presence and, subsequently, viral involvement in an increasing number of diseases. Though in every field of science the search for further knowledge is likely to be a limitless phenomenon, the distinct goal in EBV research, namely, to gain sufficient insight into the viral-host interaction to be able to intercept the pathogenic process, is beginning to be realized. Epstein-Barr virus research has effectively entered the postgenomic era that began with the sequencing of the first strains, cloned in the mid to late 1980s.

Editorial Reviews

"Timely and highly practical, Epstein-Barr Virus Protocols provides powerful tools for elucidating life cycle of EBV and its host interactions, work that promises the emergence of major new treatments and cures of EVB-associated diseases, including several forms of human cancer." - Anticancer Research"Overall it is an excellent resource aimed at postgraduate students and young researchers. Protocols are extensively referenced to the primary literature at the end of each chapter." -Today's Life Science"This book provides a well-written and concise account of many of the protocols currently in use for the study of the Epstein-Barr virus and its related diseases. It is comprehensive..." "Both volumes are laid out attractively...and contain much valuable information on the pharmacological aspects of neurotoxicology, as well as state-of-the-art methodology." -Microbiology Today"Leading-edge and forward-looking, Tumor Suppressor Genes in Human Cancer illuminates what is currently known of tumor suppressor genes and their regulation, work that is already beginning to revolutionize, and treatment design." -Tumori"This book is highly recommended for collections serving researchers in the area of molecular biology." -E-Streams
