Principles of Modern Microbiology presents an authoritative, balanced introduction to microbiology for majors. Ideal for the one-semester course, the text provides a manageable amount of detail, omitting topics that were previously taught in prerequisite courses, while still maintaining a level of intellectual rigor appropriate for students at this level. A dynamic art program presents accurate molecular & cellular images in an innovative 3-D like style, while the author’s clear, student-friendly writing style helps students grasp difficult concepts. Great Experiments boxes throughout the text describe real-world experiments and allow students to gain a clear sense of the experimental process as it applies to microbiology. Complete with a wealth of student and instructor resources, Principles of Modern Microbiology is sure to engage and inspire majors who are looking to expand their knowledge of the many facets of microbiology.
