In vitro EBV Infection of Mononuclear Cells that Have Been Cryo-preserved
Epstein-Barr Virus (EBV) is a B-lymphotropic herpesvirus which the majority of adult human population is latently-infected with. Various immunological and molecular in vitro studies have been facilitated by the use of EBV’s ability to ...
