Pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma is the fifth leading cause of cancer death in the USA. Pancreatic cancer develops as a result of the accumulation of genetic and epigenetic alterations in cancer-causing genes such as oncogenes and tumor-suppressor genes. The second edition of Pancreatic Cancer: Methods and Protocols provides a broad range of protocols for molecular, cellular, pathological, and statistical analyses of sporadic and familial pancreatic cancer. It covers topics from in-vitro cell cultures to in-vivo mouse models, DNA to protein manipulation, and genetic and epigenetic analyses to treatment development. Written in the highly successful Methods in Molecular Biology™ series format, chapters include introductions to their respective topics, lists of the necessary materials and reagents, step-by-step, readily reproducible laboratory protocols, and key tips on troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls.
Authoritative and practical, written by highly renowned investigators with expertise in pancreatic cancer, Pancreatic Cancer: Methods and Protocols, Second Edition is an invaluable source of proven protocols to those who are interested in joining the fight against pancreatic cancer.
