About this book

Provides a carefully selected collection of techniques for the microbiologist wishing to study the interactions between bacteria and their targets, whether human, animal, or plant.

...the referencing is excellent and the volume is a comprehensive guide to the literature in the field. ...the book would be most useful to practising researchers and would be a useful addition to institutional libraries and to laboratories involved in pathogenesis research. Bob Rastall, University of Reading for MICROBIOLOGY TODAY (February 2002) " excellent job of combining an overview of the basic questions in the study of bacterial pathogens and virulence with descriptions of experimental design and procedures. ...good job of placing this information into an experimental context." David Nunn, University of Illinois, in ASM NEWS (2000) Praise for the Series "An invaluable resource for the detailed analysis of cellular gene function and genome architecture." NATURE
