Summary: This volume details protocols on prion disease from multiple disciplines and highlights the contribution each discipline has made to the understanding of prion disease. Written in the highly successful Methods in Molecular Biology series format, chapters include introductions to their respective topics, lists of the necessary materials and reagents, step-by-step, readily reproducible laboratory protocols, and tips on troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls. Authoritative and practical, Prions: Methods and Protocols aims to ensure successful results in the further study of this vital field.
