Summary
Bacterial Pathogenesis: A Molecular Approach is the first text designed to provide a comprehensive introduction to this dynamic field for both students and researchers. The application of molecular techniques to the study of bacterium-host interaction has made possible great progress in fundamental understanding of the molecular basis of infectious diseases. In the text the authors integrate material from pathogenic microbiology, molecular biology, immunology, and human physiology to provide a complete but accessible overview of the field
