Principles of Bacterial Pathogenesis presents a molecular perspective on a select group of bacterial pathogens by having the leaders of the field present their perspective in a clear and authoritative manner. Each chapter contains a comprehensive review devoted to a single pathogen. Several chapters include work from authors outside the pathogenesis field, providing general perspectives on the evolution, regulation, and secretion of virulence and determinants.
  • Explains the basic principles of bacterial pathogenesis
  • Covers diverse aspects integrating regulation, cellular microbiology and evolution of microbial disease of humans
  • Discusses current strategies for the identification of virulence determinants and the methods used by microbes to deliver virulence factors
  • Presents authoritative treatises of the major disease microorganisms


Book News
Scientists from North America and Europe in several disciplines examine the best-characterized bacterial pathogens in order to reveal the salient features they have in common that allow them to conquer new niches and to circumvent host defense mechanisms. They begin with general discussions of evolution, mechanisms of factor delivery, gene expression, strategies for identifying factors, and mechanisms of bacterial pathogenesis in plants. Then they look in detail at 11 specific pathogens. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
