Principles of Bacterial Pathogenesis book cover

Principles of Bacterial Pathogenesis

Principles of Bacterial Pathogenesis presents a molecular perspective on a select group of bacterial pathogens by having the leaders of the field present their perspective in a clear and authoritative manner. Each chapter contains a comprehensive review devoted to a single pathogen. Several chapters include work from authors outside the pathogenesis field, providing general perspectives on the evolution, regulation, and secretion of virulence and determinants.

Audience
Graduates and researchers in microbiology, molecular biology, cell biology, immunology, and infectious diseases.
