With more than 1,300 figures, line drawings, and photographs, the Atlas of Immunology clearly demonstrates that "a picture is worth a thousand words." Each entry of this third edition has been revised to reflect recent advances in scientific knowledge based on current research. A new chapter on Immunophenotyping of Hematopoietic Malignancies has been added and the History of Immunology chapter has been expanded, detailing pivotal research developments. The subject matter of the book ranges from photographs of historical figures to molecular structures of recently characterized cytokines, major histocompatibility complex molecules, immunoglobins, and molecules of related interest.
