Mycobacterium: Genomics and Molecular Biology
Tanya Parish, Amanda Claire Brown
Horizon Scientific Press, 2009 - Science - 213 pages
In this book, expert scientists critically review the current and most recent advances in the genomics and molecular biology of mycobacteria. With the focus being on the topical and most relevant aspects, the contributors provide insight into the current understanding of the subject and the future direction of research. Topics covered include strain variation and evolution, hypervirulent strains, electron transport and respiration, lipid biosynthesis, DNA repair, oxygen signaling, sulphur metabolism, protein secretion, the protein kinase family, and much more. This is a valuable reference text for all microbiology laboratories and is essential reading for all scientists and researchers involved with mycobacteria.
