Autophagy and phagocytosis are distinct yet partially morphologically similar processes. Understanding them is vital for the studies of cancer, aging, neurodegeneration, immunology, and infectious diseases. This book presents autophagosome and phagosome methods for novices and advanced researchers alike. Comprehensive and forward-thinking, the book offers a valuable guide to both cellular processes while inciting researchers to explore their potentially important connections.
