Summary
The Desk Encyclopedia of Microbiology aims to give a broad perspective on a wide range of topics. It is predominantly a synthesis from the comprehensive and multi-volumed Encyclopedia of Microbiology. The intention of the Desk Encyclopedia of Microbiology is to provide an affordable and ready access to a large variety of microbiological topics within one set of covers. Encompasses broad coverage of all main areas of microbiology. Thoroughly updated chapters from the authoritative Encyclopedia of Microbiology, Second Edition. Helpful resource in preparing for lectures, writing reports, or drafting grant applications
