In HaemophilusiInfluenzae Protocols, leading research scientists and infectious disease specialists detail in a readily reproducible format the major molecular and immunological techniques for exploring the pathogenicity of H. influenzae. Described with step-by-instructions to ensure robust and successful experimental results, the techniques cover plasmid analysis, proteomics, genomics, DNA array technology, gene expression, mutagenesis (transposon and nontransposon), and structural analysis. These methods illuminate how the bacterium causes disease, as well as how best to develop novel vaccines and antibiotics against the organism.

Editorial Reviews

"This excellent book is recommended for investigators involved in laboratory research on H. influenzae from the beginning student to the experienced investigator. The book contains abundant, detailed protocols and practical tips that will be useful for all investigators." - Clinical Infectious Diseases"...an excellent source book and an inspiring reading." - International Journal of Medical Microbiology "In addition to detailed information provided in the individual chapters, the book is also valuable by providing an extensive list of 841 references....there are not many microbiological books of such high quality. The authors present highly specialized information in a comprehensible and friendly way." -Folia Microbioligica
