Editorial Reviews


"...the authors provide a comprehensive introduction to this exciting hybrid of disciplines..." ASM News

"...a welcome teaching tool for introducing students to this rapidly growing field.... this text offers a comprehensive look at the molecular mechanisms that allow bacterial pathogens to manipulate normal host cell functions for their own benefit.... the authors do an impressive job of providing an up-to-date view of the major concepts in the interactions between prokaryotic pathogens and their eukaryotic hosts.... Bacterial Disease Mechanisms is likely to become a mainstay for those who teach microbial pathogenesis as well as a useful starting point for researchers interested in acquainting themselves with concepts underpinning this exciting field." Cell become a mainstay..." Cell

Book Description

This introductory cellular microbiology textbook describes how bacteria cause human diseases. It offers a new perspective on the way in which bacteria damage their human host. It differs from other books on the subject by describing disease mechanisms in terms of the way in which bacteria subvert normal host cell functions and defense systems to ensure their own survival. Molecular techniques used to investigate these mechanisms are also discussed. Bacterial Disease Mechanisms will provide a core textbook for students taking courses on cellular and molecular microbiology, pathogenicity and medical microbiology.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is old but you will enjoy every explaination in this book. I would say this is one of the most interesting bacterial mechanism book you can find. I especially love the order of content in this book. Buy this if you want to know the basic mechanism behind a toxin's effect or how a bacteria attaches to its host cell.
