Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Viral vectors are now common in contemporary neuroscience research and their use as gene transfer tools for the central nervous system has seen an enormous growth in the last 2 decades. This chapter discusses about designing, production, and use of lentiviral vectors (LVs), one of the most popular and versatile system currently available.
