About this book

Considers the transport of molecules, large and small, across the membranes of microbial cells.

...well written and provides a review on the latest research in the area, with extensive references abailable to the reader. The tables and figures presented in Transport of Molecules Across Microbial Membranes could be valuable learning tools for students and instructors. Canadian Society of Microbiologists
