Chapter 8 Bovine Immunoglobulin Genetics: Novel Phylogenetic PerspectiveChapter 9 Informatic Tools For Immunoglobulin Gene Sequence Analysis; Back Cover
Summary This contemporary book covers significant new knowledge that has emerged during the last two decades and, thus, provides novel antibody phylogenetic perspectives relevant to development of new antibody-based therapeutics and vaccines. It fills a much-needed niche in the area of immunoglobulin genetics across species from a comparative perspective. New insights and perspectives from immunoglobulin genetics from species such as sea lamprey, cattle, marsupial, bat, rat, rabbit, and swine-other species than the traditional subjects of mice and humans-are relevant to antibody design and engineer
