Principles and Practice of Clinical Bacteriology 2006
by Stephen Gillespie
Edition: 2nd., 2006
Since the first edition of Principles and Practice of Clinical Bacteriology in 1997, there has been a revolution in the discipline of microbiology. The availability of whole genome sequences has transformed our understanding of bacterial genetics, while new technologies such as proteomics and transcriptomics have greatly enhanced our insight into pathogenicity.
The application of computers to this stream of knowledge has enabled microbiologists to see pathogens in a new way and develop new theories explaining the pathogenesis of infection and to identify new targets for anti-microbial chemotherapy.
In this new, Second Edition, internationally recognised editors and contributors comprehensively describe the various aspects of clinical bacteriology.
Each chapter has been updated to include the most recent information and expanded to include more thorough treatment of the relevant drugs, molecular diagnosis and infection control.
