Molecular Bacteriology: Protocols and Clinical Applications
Hardcover. 682 pages. Dimensions: 9.3in. x 6.4in. x 1.5in.The enormous advances in molecular biology that have been witnessed in . Not recent years have had major impacts on many areas of the biological sciences least of these has been in the field of clinical bacteriology and infectious disease . Molecular Bacteriology: Protocols and ClinicalApplications aims to provide the reader with an insight into the role that molecular methodology has to play in modern medical bacteriology. The introductory chapter ofMolecular Bacteriology: ProtocolsandCli- cal Applications offers a personal overview by a Consultant Medical Microbio- gist of the impact and future potential offered by molecular methods. The next six chapters comprise detailed protocols for a range of such methods . We believe that the use of these protocols should allow the reader to establish the various methods described in his or her own laboratory. In selecting the methods to be included in this section, we have concentrated on those that, arguably, have greatest current relevance to reference clinical bacteriology laboratories; we have deliberately chosen not to give detailed protocols for certain methods, such as multilocus enzyme electrophoresis that, in our opinion, remain the preserve of specialist la- ratories and that are not currently suited for general use. We feel that the methods included in this section will find increasing use in diagnostic laboratories and that it is important that the concepts, advantages, and limitations of each are th- oughly understood by a wide range of workers in the field .

About this title:
"The book is authoritative, as its many contributors are all experts in their fields; their contributions have been well coordinated by the editors, resulting in a unified work. . .The book is sturdily bound in hardback to withstand the considerable use it deserves and will undoubtedly get. It represents very good value and I recommend that all laboratories interested in molecular diagnosis in bacteriology should buy a copy of it."-Journal of Medical Microbiology
"Although intended primarily for clinical microbiologists and infectious disease specialists, this book will be an excellent reference for investigators who want to use established molecular techniques in a variety of studies. The numerous contributing authors are well regarded within their respective fields and their descriptions and interpretations of their techniques will allow readers to efficiently establish state-of-the-art methodologies in their laboratories...Each chapter contained in this volume is current and well written, and supported with an extensive and recent list of citations....This is an important reference for molecular techniques that will soon change clinical microbiology. It will be a valuable addition to the collection of libraries that serve medical and academic communities. It is an essential addition to the private libraries of clinical microbiologists and those studying infectious diseases."-Doody's Health Science Book Review Journal
". . .a book that will be useful not only to the experienced researchers, but also to the newcomer."-Laboratoriums Medizin
