About this book

Traces research in bacteriophages in E. coli, the role of other prokaryotic systems, the protozoan and algal models, and the move into eukaryotes with the fungal systems Neurospora, Aspergillus and yeast. Each model was selected for its appropriateness for asking a given class of questions. This book relates the role of model systems to the growth of molecular biology.

The book is finely researched; it should be in any library, reflecting varying views on the phenomenal rise of genetics in the second half of the 20th century. MicroBiology Today
