9780471014522: Microbial Physiology

Microbial physiology, the understanding of cell structure, growth factors, metabolism and genetic composition of microorganisms, is a field that is experiencing growth and strong interest. However, there is a lack of solid, comprehensive, and current reference books covering this part of microbiology.

Microbial Physiology, Third Edition fills that void.

This new edition is completely revised and updated to reflect the most current information and latest topics. Written by two of the leading experts in the field, Albert G. Moat and John W. Foster, the new edition of Microbial Physiology integrates genetics and molecular biology with bacterial physiology and metabolism in addition to providing an in-depth coverage of all the topics central to microbial physiology.

Topics covered in the Third Edition include:

  • Macromolecular Synthesis and Processing
  • Regulation of Prokaryotic Gene Expression
  • Bacteriophage Genetics
  • Subcellular Structure of Microorganisms
  • Nitrogen Metabolism
  • Amino Acids, Purines, and Pyrimidines
  • Morphogenesis: Development of Dormant and Resting Forms

Microbial Physiology, Third Edition is the perfect reference source for professional microbiologists and graduate students in microbiology, as well as researchers in both the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries.
