BiteSized Immunology

BiteSized Immunology is a developing online resource designed to form a comprehensive guide to the immune system, yet approaching the topic via punchy, easy-to-digest, entries that outline major learning points.

You can search by keyword, and access/download the content in a variety of formats – as well as via graphical interface, or flexible menu system.

The content is especially suitable for biomedical undergraduates, but should appeal to advanced school students and others coming to the field of immunology for the first time.
