In this volume, top researchers provide hands-on protocols describing the process of non-viral delivery of genetic materials such as DNA in order to better treat disease. Each method and protocol offers step-by-step, readily reproducible laboratory instructions, with the benefit of several introductory reviews to aid investigators new to this exciting technology. Notes on troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls are helpfully provided.
