Molecular Genetics of Bacteria, Fourth Edition
The single most comprehensive and authoritative textbook on bacterial molecular genetics
This revised edition of Molecular Genetics of Bacteria provides descriptive background information, detailed experimental methods, examples of genetic analyses, and advanced material relevant to current applications of molecular genetics. Integrated with biochemical, genomic, and structural information, Molecular Genetics of Bacteria offers readers an opportunity to gain a deeper understanding of bacterial molecular genetics.
The approach centers on the most-studied bacteria, Escherichia coli and Bacillus subtilis. Additionally, examples from other medically, ecologically, or biotechnologically significant bacteria are covered throughout the text. The revised text reflects exciting developments in the field of bacterial molecular genetics and its relationship to other fields, including genetics, biotechnology, and bioengineering.
Perfect for advanced undergraduate and graduate-level courses, each chapter contains
- A summary of main points
- Descriptions of significant experiments, discussion questions and problem sets (with answers provided in the appendix)
- A recommended reading list
The book also includes a glossary of terms.
This new edition is an invaluable reference for anyone working in the fields of microbiology, genetics, biochemistry, bioengineering, medicine, molecular biology, and biotechnology.
