Introduction to microbiology
The new edition of Introduction to Microbiology addresses the needs of allied health professionals and other readers like never before. This unique author team of a leading microbiology educator (and former president of ASM-America Society for Microbiology) and a physician understands how to include the correct amount of detail to explain complex topics, while motivating readers to learn about the exciting world of microbes through real clinical studies. This revision includes more motivating case studies, and provides even greater emphasis of appropriate detail and refinement of the notably clear writing style by eliminating jargon in every chapter. Significant updating throughout ensures readers have access to the most current research in this dynamic field.
