About this book

Experts review important new topics in microbiology, including quorum sensing, horizontal gene transfer in Vibrio cholerae, anthrax toxin, invasion mechanisms, bacterial bleaching of corals, response to starvation, cell-to-cell interactions, natural genetic engineering, and prions. Each chapter offers a general introduction to the topic, a specific introduction to the research, a critical evaluation of the most recent research on the subject, and a special section on unresolved questions and future research.
