Animal cells are a relative newcomer to the field of biotechnology, but they are increasing in importance with the development of genetically engineered cell lines. The book is a guide to the culture requirements, preservation, & international organizations from which help & information on animal cell cultures can be obtained. It will allow both existing scientists in the field & others entering the discipline for the first time to understand some of the basic principles underlying animal cell technology & all those other, seemingly unrelated but entirely essential, pieces of information necessary to work efficiently & effectively. It covers resource & information centers, administrative & safety issues, culture & maintenance issues, quality control, patent protection, & culture collection services. The authors are all practicing scientists with considerable expertise, which they have drawn upon to make each contribution a mine of information impossible to obtain elsewhere.
