Book Description

May 31, 2007 1555813992 978-1555813994 3
This landmark volume provides the single most comprehensive and authoritative textbook on bacterial molecular genetics. Perfect for advanced undergraduate and graduate-level courses, the text presents the latest research on the subject in a clearly written and well-illustrated style. It provides descriptive background information, detailed experimental methods, examples of genetic analyses, and advanced material relevant to current applications of molecular genetics. While providing a deep understanding of bacterial molecular genetics, the material is integrated with biochemical, genomic, and structural information to broaden understanding. The approach centers on the most-studied bacteria, Escherichia coli and Bacillus subtilis. In addition, examples from other bacteria with medical, ecological, or biotechnological significance are covered throughout the text. The material in each chapter has been substantially revised and rewritten and reflects exciting developments in the field of bacterial molecular genetics and its relationship to other fields, including genetics, biotechnology, and bioengineering. Molecular Genetics of Bacteria, 3rd Edition is organized like the two previous editions. Each chapter contains a summary of main points, descriptions of significant experiments, a set of discussion questions and a problem set (with answers to both at the back of the book), and a list of suggested readings-all updated to reflect the most recent advances in the field. Additionally, text boxes present intriguing information on each topic without interrupting the continuity of the text. This third edition is invaluable to anyone working in the fields of microbiology, genetics, biochemistry, bioengineering, medicine, molecular biology, and biotechnology. It is also essential reading for scientists in all fields of biology, many of whom depend upon the concepts and techniques covered in this book. New in the Third Edition* Features completely revised and updated material, incorporating the most recent advances in the field since publication of the second edition in 2002* Introduces over 100 brand-new illustrations* Offers a revised and expanded glossary containing approximately 1,000 entries Key Features and Benefits* Each chapter includes a concise end-of-chapter summary of the material covered* Incorporates text boxes that introduce readers to exciting developments and related topics of interest* Provides thought questions, problems, and suggested reading lists at the conclusion of each chapter that test student comprehension and encourage further research* Written by only two authors, both of whom are specialists in the field and who have significant experience teaching the subject of bacterial molecular genetics* Integrates biochemical, genomic, and structural information that broadens the knowledge obtained from molecular genetics* Focuses on the most widely studied bacteria, Escherichia coli and Bacillus subtilis, but incorporates many examples from other bacteria of medical, ecological, and biotechnological importance

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Book March 25, 2004
Format:Hardcover
This is an excellent and in-depth presentation of the molecular genetics of prokaryotes. Explanations are crystal clear throughout, and the diagrams are very well done. (Typographical errors are everywhere, but fortunately they are easy to spot and none of them are misleading.) The text can seem long at times, but the extra effort spent reading is repaid in terms of clarity. The authors are careful to insure everything is explained well. The book also covers several areas of prokaryotic biology besides molecular genetics, such as cell division, antibiotics, transport of molecules across the cell membrane, two-component signaling pathways, bacteriophages, and many others.
This is undoubtedly the best introduction to prokaryotic biology out there. Highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic introduction to the subject July 31, 2005
Format:Hardcover
This is one of few college textbooks I've used that has actually HELPED me learn the course material. The book takes you from the basics (DNA structure and replication, etc.) all the way through some very complex concepts while never missing a beat. It's surprisingly readable and student-user-friendly whether you're a beginner or a certifiable gene jockey. My only complaint is the quality of the figures; some of them are very small and thus hard to read, and as one reviewer commented, they are sort of simplistic to the point of not being very thorough. Having full-color illustrations would be a big plus.

Overall, this book definitely surpasses other bacterial genetics books I've seen as far as readability and organization goes. It delivers what it promises!

4.0 out of 5 stars Very useful and informative March 5, 2005
Format:Hardcover
This book is great in developing the concepts and explaining in an easy but at the same time technical way just what is involved in bacterial genetics. Teaching from the historical perspective, you really get a sense of what these researchers were faced with and just how valuable their breakthoughs were. It doesn't try to be "hip" like so many other undergraduate textbooks out there, and for that they get full credit. The figures are a little simplistic though.

This book is incredibly well written. It follows a logical progression throughout and is detailed, yet still clear. I am graduating with two degrees (Biochemistry and Microbiology) and I can say I've used this book more than any other on my shelf. I bought it for a bacterial physiology course, but have used it for many others when I needed a better explanation than the assigned readings or the professors supplied. I really appreciate that the language is straight forward and you don't have to muscle your way through it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent bacterial genetics text December 1, 2010
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This is probably one of my favorite biology books on my three shelves of (bio) textbooks and notes. The information is indepth, but the authors make sure to give descent background and work their way up to topics. Unlike many biology books, they successfully divide their information up into appropriate, manageable topics so it flows relatively seamlessly. It is still information dense, hence the 'relatively'. I'm writing this review because I am currently writing a grant proposal for my lab job to start a genetics project. Although I've taken genetics, this book has been a great refresher and a reminder of the nuances that make genetics a precarious research topic. It covers very relevant information that is necessary to know before embarking on specific projects.

5.0 out of 5 stars A very good book for molecular biology students December 21, 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This book can't be used as a stand alone book for a microbiology course in graduate level but better as a sub for a portion of the class. An easy read and in depth it was but not broad enough in my opinion. It goes deep into the genetics and transposons than most other books that I have read. Other potential uses of transposons were also mentioned in this book. In general, I would recommend this book as a reference for graduate level classes.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great for a reference
This book was purchased for a class, but it is much too detailed for any semester long course. It would better be used as a reference when conducting microbial genetic research.
