Sherris Medical Microbiology
For more than a quarter-of-a-century Sherris has been unmatched in its ability to help you understand the nature of microorganisms and their role in the maintenance of health or causation of disease. Through a dynamic, engaging approach, this classic text gives you a solid grasp of the significance of etiologic agents, the pathogenic processes, epidemiology, and the basis of therapy for infectious diseases.
Microbiology Experiments - A Health Science Perspective
All experiments are correlated to Nester's Microbiology: A Human Perspective, 4/e, but can be used with any non-majors/allied health microbiology textbook.
Advances in Applied Microbiology
The series contains comprehensive reviews of the most current research in applied microbiology. Recent areas covered include bacterial diversity in the human gut, protozoan grazing of freshwater biofilms, metals in yeast fermentation processes and the interpretation of host-pathogen dialogue through microarrays
The kaplan videos are the brand new editions from the 2010 course, for use with the new green revision notes. Coming to a total of 210 hours of video.They have been completely revised from the 2007 versions, and have been refilmed in crystal clear high-definition video.
"Molecular Wine Microbiology"
Microbiology has long been recognized as a key tool in studying wine production, however only more recently has that study been conducted at a molecular level, increasing the understanding of how microbiology impacts not only the flavor quality of the wine, but also the safety. Understanding at a molecular level how a starter culture can impact the volatile phenols, biogenic amines and ochratoxin A of a wine are just some of the core points that must be considered in order to achieve maximium consumer acceptability while addressing safety concerns during processing and storage. While other books offer insights into the production aspects of enology, this book is written by expert microbiologists, who explore the positive and negative impacts of gene mechanisms in the production of wine, from a microbiological point of view.
"Environmental Microbiology of Aquatic and Waste Systems"
This book places the main actors in environmental microbiology, namely the microorganisms, on center stage. Using the modern approach of 16S ribosomal RNA, the book looks at the taxonomy of marine and freshwater bacteria, fungi, protozoa, algae, viruses, and the smaller aquatic animals such as nematodes and rotifers, as well as at the study of unculturable aquatic microorganisms (metagenomics). The peculiarities of water as an environment for microbial growth, and the influence of aquatic microorganisms on global climate and global recycling of nitrogen and sulphur are also examined. The pollution of water is explored in the context of self-purification of natural waters. Modern municipal water purification and disease transmission through water are discussed. Alternative methods for solid waste disposal are related to the economic capability of a society. Viruses are given special attention. By focusing on the basics, this primer will appeal across a wide range of disciplines.
Methods in Microbiology
Focusing on the methods most useful for the Microbiologist interested in analysing host-pathogen relationships, this volume will be essential reading for all researchers working in microbiology, immunology, virology, mycology and parasitology. This new edition of Immunology of Infection provides ready-to-use "recipes", and the latest emerging techniques as well as novel approaches to the tried and tested, established methods included in the successful first edition. Methods in Microbiologyis the most prestigious series devoted to techniques and methodology in the field. Established for over 30 years, Methods in Microbiology will continue to provide you with tried and tested, cutting edge protocols to directly benefit your research.
"Soil Microbiology and Sustainable Crop Production"
Soils into which crop plants root and from which they obtain essential minerals and water contain huge arrays of microbes. Many have highly beneficial effects on crop growth and productivity, others are pathogens causing diseases and losses to yield and quality, a few microbes offer protection from these pathogenic forms and others have little or no effect. These intimate and often complex inter-relationships are being explored with increasing success providing exciting opportunities for increasing crop yields and quality in sustainable harmony with the populations of beneficial soil microbes and to the detriment of pathogens. This book explores current knowledge for each of these aspects of soil microbiology and indicates where future progress is most likely to aid in increasing crop productivity by means which are environmentally benign and beneficial.
This course will include the study of cell structure and physiology of microorganisms, methods of microbial control, specific and nonspecific host defenses, epidemiology, pathogenic microorganisms and the microbiology of food and water. Microorganisms studied will include bacteria, viruses, fungi and protozoa.
