Salmonella: Methods and Protocols presents detailed methods on a variety of aspects of Salmonella research, focusing on those which provide landmarks for future discovery. Highlighted topics include molecular genotyping, rapid and accurate new methods for sensitive determination of antibiotic resistance profiles, the characterization of Salmonella-specific cell antigens, and Salmonella-host cell interactions. Detailed methods for studying Salmonella motility are also presented. Each chapter provides a short overview of the topic, which is followed by detailed explanations of techniques such as genetic manipulation and molecular imaging that offer the possibilities of using Salmonella as a therapeutic vector to interfere with disease. This is the first comprehensive volume of methods and protocols for studying Salmonella and will be indispensable to researchers engaged in the study of Salmonella, and enterobacteria in general. Because no recent comprehensive literature of this format is available on Salmonella, Salmonella: Methods and Protocols will be of value to a wide variety of researchers engaged in the study of Salmonella, and enterobacteria in general.
