Includes six sections of chapters that detail the campylobacter organism; the clinical and epidemiologic aspects of campylobacter infections, pathogenesis, and immunity; the emerging field of campylobacter glycobiology, which has provided a structural basis for understanding important polysaccharides and glycolipids from the organism. Offers insight into glycosylation systems, which are present in other prokaryotes and eukaryotes. Covers groundbreaking work on the molecular analyses of C. jejuni and other Campylobacter species.
