About this book

The Fourth Edition of Microbial Physiology retains the logical, easy-to-follow organization of the previous editions. An introduction to cell structure and synthesis of cell components is provided, followed by detailed discussions of genetics, metabolism, growth, and regulation for anyone wishing to understand the mechanisms underlying cell survival and growth. This comprehensive reference approaches the subject from a modern molecular genetic perspective, incorporating new insights gained from various genome projects.

a useful addition to the library of any teach or researcher in microbiology. (Biomolecular Engineering, March 2003) "...expanded and reorganized based upon the rapid growth in the field since the last edition...highly recommended..." (E Streams, Vol.5, No. 12, December 2002) "Microbial Physiology (4th ed.) by Moat, Foster, and Spector is much improved compared to previous editions. The graphics in particular are vastly enhanced, making this a very useful book." (ASM News)
