By Thomas A. Owen, Lydia C. Pan (auth.), Jennifer J. Westendorf (eds.)

In contemporary years, the research of bone cells and tissues on the mobile and molecular degrees in numerous versions has revolutionized the sector. In Osteoporosis: equipment and Protocols, best scientists from all over the world proportion their step by step laboratory protocols for learning bone biology. the subjects lined during this quantity comprise in vitro types, in vivo types applied for drug trying out, tissue engineering and osteoporosis stories in both gender, cutting-edge molecular ideas to evaluate unmarried genes or for worldwide genomic research, strong imaging concepts, and plenty of extra. As a quantity within the hugely profitable Methods in Molecular Biology™ sequence, each one bankruptcy presents a short advent, an inventory of useful fabrics, and a Notes part detailing pointers on troubleshooting and averting identified pitfalls.

Comprehensive and state-of-the-art, Osteoporosis: equipment and Protocols is the appropriate consultant for either new and skilled experimentalists trying to examine the devastating silent sickness referred to as osteoporosis.
