About this book

Concise and up-to-date, this handy guide fills a gap in the literature by providing the essential knowledge for everyone with an interest in the topic. The result is a comprehensive overview of the most important model organism in applied microbiology that covers basic biology, pathology and biotechnological applications.

Altogether, the present volume on Pseudomonas provides excellent readings of different topics, both in relation to infection problems and to possible 'green' technologies. (The Quarterly Review of Biology, June 2009)
