About this book

Microbiology: An Evolving Science promotes a clear understanding of this rapidly advancing field in two distinctive ways. First, an emphasis on current research, genomics and molecular genetics enables students to learn how microbiologists think as they master the discipline's foundational topics. Second, a stunning and consistently executed art program helps students visualise key microbiological processes and structures.

She has published numerous research articles with undergraduate coauthors on bacterial pH regulation and has published six science fiction novels, including A Door into Ocean and The Highest Frontier, both of which earned the John W.
