With more than 1100 computer-generated figures, line drawings, and photographs, Atlas of Immunology clearly demonstrates that “a picture is worth a thousand words.” Written for students, basic scientists, and clinicians, this second edition provides a thorough and up-to-date treatment of all the concepts needed to comprehend contemporary immunology. The coverage ranges from photographs of historical figures to molecular structures of recently characterized cytokines, major histocompatibility complex molecules, immunoglobulins, and molecules of related interest.
