Gene Expression Systems: Using Nature for the Art of Expression offers detailed information on a wide variety of gene expression systems from an array of organisms. It describes several different types of expression systems including transient, stable, viral, and transgenic systems. Each chapter is written by a leader in the field. The book includes timelines and examples for each expression system, and provides an overview of the future of recombinant protein expression. Key Features * Provides detailed information on expression systems * Covers a variety of promoters and host organisms enabling researchers to tailor protocols to their specific needs * Includes timelines and examples * Compares pros and cons of each method.
