About this book

Comprehensive and detailed textbook, which looks at the subject from a genetic viewpoint and with an evolutionary perspective. It examines how bacteria survive, adapt and reproduce, looking at the genetic machinery involved. There are further sections on issues such as diversification, mutation and genetic instability.
