About this book

This new volume presents overviews of the very latest genetic approaches in a diverse range of prokaryotes. Divided into three sections, the topics include essential techniques for genetic analysis, case studies in which genetic methods in carefully chosen genera are described and approaches are used in the elucidation of specific phenomena. It includes up-to-date chapters on essential techniques for genetic analysis in diverse bacteria. It also covers the use of plasmids, phages and transposons and their applications to new organisms. It includes genetic methods in medically and industrially important bacteria such as Mycobacteria, Neisseria, Bacteroides, Clostridia, and spirochaetes. It provides an analysis of virulence in Helicobacter and Erwina; Genetic methods in Archae; Photosynthesis and respiration in Paracoccus and Rhodobacter; and Bacillus subtilis sporulation.

Praise for the Series "An invaluable resource for the detailed analysis of cellular gene function and genome architecture." --NATURE
