About this book

The application of new molecular methodologies in the study of bacterial behaviour and cell architecture has enabled new revolutionary insights and discoveries in these areas. While this has also raised a number of scientific mysteries about bacteria, it certainly improved our understanding of these organisms as complex and adaptive entities rather than just simple tiny buckets of enzymes. The value of this recent knowledge in bacterial physiology is not only restricted to fundamental biology, but it also extends to biotechnology and drug-discovery disciplines where understanding cell behaviour and structure is essential for better exploitation of useful bacteria and effective eradication of harmful ones. This makes a new text accommodating recent developments in bacterial physiology highly relevant to a wide range of readership including those interested in basic and applied knowledge.

Media reviews

From the reviews: "Bacterial Physiology is an ambitious volume with contributions by 28 world experts ! . This monograph has collected many recent findings in the field and includes such topics as subcellular organization and function; regulation and expression of the genome, and cellular interaction with the environment via protein synthesis and secretion; intracellular signaling; and cellular adaptation. ! will undoubtedly serve as a valuable reference for researchers in prokaryotic physiology and biotechnology. Summing Up: Recommended. Graduate students and researchers/faculty." (J. L. Ninnemann, CHOICE, Vol. 45 (11), 2008) "This book presents some of the recent advances in bacterial physiology that have been made by the use of molecular microbiology. ... a valuable addition to the available literature on current bacterial physiology. At the end of each chapter there are appropriate references to guide those desiring more in depth infoimation on the various topics. ... a good guide for those wanting to investigate the topics in more detail. I enjoyed reading ... and would recommend it to researchers in the field of microbial physiology." (Diane McDougald, Microbe Magazine, December, 2008) "This is definitely an advanced text relating to molecular aspects of bacterial physiology. ! Essentially there are interesting and clear up-to-date reviews that are well-referenced. ! It provides a solid basis for all researchers and PhD students in the area as well as in depth studies by final-year undergraduates." (Mike Larkin, Microbiology Today, February, 2009)
