Microbiology: A Centenary Perspective

Front Cover

ASM Press, 1999 - Medical - 584 pages
This fascinating volume is a collection of landmark papers in microbiology that have appeared during the past century. Five ASM committees selected papers in five categories: diagnostic microbiology and epidemiology, pathogenesis and host response mechanisms, general and applied microbiology, molecular biology and physiology, and virology. Each committee has contributed a general introduction, and an introduction to each paper selected. The introductions focus on the importance of each contribution as well as the historical context in which it was written. An engaging foreword by Dr. Joshua Lederberg provides additional perspective.
