Janis Kuby's groundbreaking introduction to immunology was the first textbook for the course actually written to be a textbook. Like no other text, it combined an experimental emphasis with extensive pedagogical features to help students grasp basic concepts. Now in a thoroughly updated new edition, Kuby Immunology remains the only undergraduate introduction to immunology written by teachers of the course. In the Kuby tradition, authors Jenni Punt, Sharon Stranford, Patricia Jones, and Judy Owen present the most current topics in an experimental context, conveying the excitement of scientific discovery, and highlight important advances, but do so with the focus on the big picture of the study of immune response, enhanced by unsurpassed pedagogical support for the first-time learner. Punt, Stranford, Jones, and Owen bring an enormous range of teaching and research experiences to the text, as well as a dedication to continue the experiment-based, pedagogical-driven approach of Janis Kuby. For this edition, they have worked chapter by chapter to streamline the coverage, to address topics that students have the most trouble grasping, and to continually remind students where the topic at hand fits in the study of immunology as a whole.

DIE Einführung in die Immunologie für Studierende der Biowissenschaften und der Medizin Der Janeway, das bewährte und viel gelobte* Standardlehrbuch der Immunologie, liegt nun erneut in einer vollständig überarbeiteten und aktualisierten Fassung vor. Das Werk führt den Leser in gewohnter Souveränität durch alle Aspekte des Immunsystems – vom ersten Einsatz der angeborenen Immunität bis zur Erzeugung der adaptiven Immunantwort, von den vielfältigen klinischen Konsequenzen normaler und pathologischer immunologischer Reaktionen bis zur Evolution des Immunsystems. In der 7. Auflage sind unter anderem neue Erkenntnisse über NK-Zellen, Toll-like-Rezeptoren, intrazelluläre Signalwege, virale Evasine, AID, die Evolution des angeborenen Immunsystems, das immunologische Gedächtnis, die mucosale Immunität und Zöliakie integriert. Zudem wurden die Verständnisfragen an den Kapitelenden erweitert. Das in zahlreiche Sprachen übersetzte Werk besticht durch seine Aktualität, seine konzeptionelle Geschlossenheit und seine ansprechende Illustration. Es bleibt damit in diesem unverändert rasant fortschreitenden Fachgebiet ein hochaktueller und verlässlicher Begleiter. *Stimmen zu früheren Auflagen: »Dieses Buch bringt Studenten und Wissenschaftlern die Immunologie aktuell und in hervorragender Weise näher.« Prof. Dr. N. Müller-Lantzsch, Universitätskliniken Homburg »Ein Lehrbuch, das eine hervorragende Didaktik hat und an Aktualität nicht zu übertreffen ist.« Prof. Dr. Lothar Rink, Universitätsklinikum Aachen »Die neue Auflage ist kaum noch zu schlagen.« Prof. Dr. S.H.E. Kaufmann, Max-Planck-Institut für Infektionsbiologie, Berlin »Mit Recht zählt das Buch zu den Marktführern seines Faches und sollte in keiner Bibliothek fehlen.« Pharmind »Unter den Immunologie-Lehrbüchern nimmt dieses sicher heute den vorderen Rang ein. Es macht Vergnügen, sich von ihm bilden zu lassen.« Biospektrum »Uneingeschränkt empfehlenswert; es eignet sich besonders für Biologiestudenten zur Prüfungsvorbereitung, für Mediziner als Nachschlagewerk, aber auch für Studenten und Dozenten anderer Fächer.« Chirurgische Praxis »Dieses packende moderne Lehrbuch [bietet] jungen Biologen und Medizinern die gegenwärtig beste Möglichkeit, die Mechanismen des Immunsystems in ihrem evolutionären und funktionellen Kontext und medizinischen Bezug kennen zu lernen und vielleicht für ihre eigene zukünftige Tätigkeit zu entdecken.« Prof. Klaus Rajewsky im Vorwort zur Vorauflage

"Taken together, the body of information contained in this book provides readers with a bird’s-eye view of different aspects of exciting work at the convergence of disciplines that will ultimately lead to a future where we understand how immunity is regulated, and how we can harness this knowledge toward practical ends that reduce human suffering. I commend the editors for putting this volume together." –Arup K. Chakraborty, Robert T. Haslam Professor of Chemical Engineering, and Professor of Physics, Chemistry, and Biological Engineering, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge, USA New experimental techniques in immunology have produced large and complex data sets that require quantitative modeling for analysis. This book provides a complete overview of computational immunology, from basic concepts to mathematical modeling at the single molecule, cellular, organism, and population levels. It showcases modern mechanistic models and their use in making predictions, designing experiments, and elucidating underlying biochemical processes. It begins with an introduction to data analysis, approximations, and assumptions used in model building. Core chapters address models and methods for studying immune responses, with fundamental concepts clearly defined. Readers from immunology, quantitative biology, and applied physics will benefit from the following: Fundamental principles of computational immunology and modern quantitative methods for studying immune response at the single molecule, cellular, organism, and population levels. An overview of basic concepts in modeling and data analysis. Coverage of topics where mechanistic modeling has contributed substantially to current understanding. Discussion of genetic diversity of the immune system, cell signaling in the immune system, immune response at the cell population scale, and ecology of host-pathogen interactions.
