About this book

Both viral and bacterial systems are considered, with specific examples illustrating the rapid advances being made in defining the molecular mechanisms underlying infection.

'What a feast! This is a book which provides not only a series of comprehensive position papers on the state-of-the-art in one of the most rapidly developing - and trendy - areas in microbiology today, but a set of meaty reviews which should also be in the hands of those of us who dabble in other areas like molecular epidemiology and clinical microbiology. I strongly recommend my colleagues in these areas to read them if for nothing but the good of their souls!' Hugh Pennington, Society for General Microbiology Quarterly
