Computational Immunology: Basics
by Shyamasree Ghosh
The immune system is highly complex system with large number of macromolecules, signaling pathways, protein-protein interactions, and gene expressions. Studies from genomics, transcriptomics, metabolomics are generating huge high throughput data that needs to be analyzed for understanding the Immune system in Health and Disease. Computational approaches arehelping in understanding the study of complex biology of immunology and thereby enabling design of therapeutic strategies in diseases like infectious diseases, immunodeficiency, allergic, hypersensitive, autoimmune disorders and diseases like Cancer, HIV etc. Computational Immunology: Basics highlights the basics of the immune system and function in health and disease. This book offers comprehensive coverage of the most essential topics, including
- Overview of Immunology and computational Immunology
- Immune organs and cells, antigen, antibody, B, cell, T cell
- Antigen Processing and presentation
- Diseases due to abnormalities of the immune system
- Cancer Biology

NETosis: Immunity, Pathogenesis and Therapeutics
by Geeta Rai
NETosis: Immunity, Pathogenesis and Therapeutics takes a focused approach to the clinical aspects of NETosis and drug development, bringing critical findings. Chapters introduce NETosis, consider mechanisms and antimicrobial strategies regulating NETosis, examine NETosis in neonates, explore the role of NETosis in autoimmunity, delve into NETosis and other diseases, and present therapeutic approaches for dysregulated NETosis. Since Brinkamm, et al, discovered an unrecognized neutrophil anti-microbial mechanism responsible for the extracellular killing of invading pathogens in 2004, the novel process in which nuclear chromatin de-condenses and DNA is ejected into the extra cellular environment, trapping and inactivating tissue pathogens has rapidly evolved.
- Presents an up-to-date and detailed analysis of NETosis
- Brings together critical findings on NETosis as a comparatively novel immune mechanism
- Focuses on the clinical aspects of NETosis that lead to drug development
- Covers the topic with a cogency and passion that is based on years of scientific research

Mucosal Immunology 4th Edition
by Jiri Mestecky
Mucosal Immunology, now in its fourth edition, is the only comprehensive reference covering the basic science and clinical manifestations of mucosal immunology. Most infectious agents enter the body through the various mucous membranes, and many common infections take place in or on mucous membranes, making this subject an area of singular importance in the field of immunology. This book contains new research data, exceptional illustrations, original theory, a new perspective, and excellent organization. It covers immune system topics, such as inductive and effector tissues and cells, and development and physiology of the mucosal barrier; diseases in the digestive system, respiratory tract, and genitourinary tract; and immunodeficiency.
- The most comprehensive text on mucosal immunology from internationally recognized experts in the field
- Includes exceptional color illustrations, new research data, original theory and information on all mucosal diseases
- Contains nine new chapters and an expanded appendix
