- Emphasizes the molecular genetics of antibiotic production * Provides the latest information on the organization of genes encoding the biosynthetic pathway * Explores the mechanisms governing their expression and regulation * Examines the role of resistance genes in protecting organisms from their own lethal products
Genetics and Biochemistry of Antibiotic Production brings together the most up-to-date information on the genetic and biochemical mechanisms involved in antibiotic production. A collection of internationally recognized authors provide the latest information on the organization, function and regulation of genes responsible for antibiotic synthesis in a range of bacteria. This unique book groups antibiotics according to their biosynthetic affiliation, providing a background into evolutionary
relationships while raising intriguing questions about the raison d'etre of antibiotics in nature.
