This complete resource on the biology of prokaryotes covers all taxonomic diversity using the family level to delineate chapters. It examines molecular, applied and general prokaryotic biology, bacterial communities, and human bacteriology.
The lactic acid bacteria LAB are a group of related micro-organisms that are enormously important in the food and beverage industries, preventing food spoilage and extending shelf life.
The future of agriculture depends on our ability to enhance productivity without sacrificing long-term production potential. Using microorganisms such as plant growth promoting bacteria PGPB is one economically and ecologically sustainable solution.
In its expanded fourth edition, this updated classic represents the most complete resource on the biology of ptokaryotes. Different from other resources, it includes not only taxonomy, but also prokaryotic biology and technology of taxa in a broad context.
This book covers phage-bacterial-human interactions: the role and impact of phages on natural bacterial communities, the potential to develop phage-based therapeutics and other aspects in which phages can be used to combat disease, including bacterial detection, epidemiology, tracing of fecal contamination of water and decontamination of foods.
* The latest edition of this highly successful introduction tobacterial genetics covering basic concepts and latestdevelopments. * Contains more detail on sigma factors, expanded treatment of integrons and a major update of the chapter on Gene Mapping and Genomics .
Helps you in understanding and controlling pathogenic bacteria in poultry, beef, and pork. This book highlights research efforts of researchers from the tristate Food Safety Consortium established in 1988 by Congress as a research alliance of food-safety scientists at the University of Arkansas, Iowa State University, and Kansas State University.
1st Prize, 'New Authored Books' category, Royal Society of Medicine and Society of Authors Medical Book Awards 2008 "Overall, I am impressed by the up-to date information content and structure provided in Bacteriology of Humans. It is truly an ecological perspective helpful for undergraduate/graduate majors in microbiology and immunology.
A concise, beautifully illustrated book which introduces the basic science of medical bacteriology and relates it to clinical practice. Explains the essentials of bacterial infection, and also provides the basis for logical diagnostic and management strategies, including the use of antibiotics.
As outbreaks of foodborne disease continue to rise, the effective identification and control of pathogens becomes ever more important for the food industry. This title presents control measures and how they can be applied to individual pathogens. It covers general techniques in assessing and managing bacterial hazards.
