This book is designed to introduce readers to the exciting world of immunology, the people who populate it and foster a curiosity to question and know more. The book is supported by a consistent, colourful art programme. The detailed explanation of concepts and terms, and the deconstruction of complex molecular mechanisms into simple, easy-to-remember steps help students focus on the fundamentals without any distractions. Packed with extensive Web-based supplements, the book enables students to visualize concepts, thereby enriching the learning process.
The book, comprising twenty chapters, has numerous pedagogical elements built into it. Margin snippets present interesting and relevant information without breaking the flow of the text. Margin definitions highlight the key terms for easy identification and recollection. Each chapter talks about a relevant molecular biology technique, thus providing an insight into the practical aspect of immunology as well. A glossary at the end of the book lists out the important terms used.
