Summary
"Written by leading researchers in the field, this invaluable book details the major current advances in microbial population genetics and genomics. Distinguished international scientists introduce fundamental concepts, describe genetic tools and comprehensively review recent data from SNP surveys, whole-genome DNA sequences and microarray hybridizations. Chapters cover broad groups of microorganisms including viruses, bacteria, archaea, fungi, protozoa and algae. A major focus of the book is the application of molecular tools in the study of genetic variation. Topics covered include microbial systematics, comparative microbial genomics, horizontal gene transfer, pathogenic bacteria, nitrogen-fixing bacteria, cyanobacteria, microalgae, fungi, malaria parasites, viral pathogens and metagenomics." "An essential volume for everyone interested in population genetics, and highly recommended reading for all microbiologists."--BOOK JACKET
