Principles of Bacterial Pathogenesis

Edited by

  • Eduardo Groisman, Howard Hughes Medical Institute, Washington University School of Medicine, St. Louis, Missouri, U.S.A.

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.
