The cells and regulators involved in haemopoiesis are well characterized, providing biochemists and cell and molecular biologists with an exciting system in which to study normal and abnormal growth and differentiation. Rapid progress has also been made in the application of researchtechniques to human cells, giving rise to new therapeutic approaches to diseases such as leukaemia. This is a detailed guide to the most important methods in use in this area today, and will be of major interest to haematologists and researchers in many areas of basic and medical research.
G. Molineux, both at the Paterson Institute for Cancer Research, Manchester.

Editorial Reviews

`The tried formula of technical chapters with very detailed recipes and extensive practical advice provide the information never published in any materials and methods sections ... a continued high level of quality is maintained ... Many of the techniques are pertinent to anyone working withcells in suspension in other fields of biological research and as such the book, especially at the price asked, should be attractive to many workers and laboratories active in other fields of research.'Cell Biology International, Vol. 18, No. 2, 1994
