Designed as both a textbook and reference, outlines the principles, methods, and applications of this exciting new discipline of public health. Techniques utilized in the field of molecular biology have been recognized as critical tools in solving infectious disease problems. This introductory volume, distinguishing molecular epidemiology from taxonomy and phylogeny, will familiarize epidemiologists with molecular biology and molecular biologists with epidemiology and will present vocabulary and concepts of both fields to infectious disease clinicians.

provides a state-of-the-art review of molecular epidemiology, using real-world examples that clearly illustrate basic concepts. While emphasis is placed on bacterial infectious diseases as the discussion model, ideas presented are generally applicable to other categories of infectious diseases. The glossary of terms propogates the language of molecular epidemiology and will foster improved communication and idea exchange among epidemiologists, microbiologists, and clinicians. Also provided are useful website addresses to allow for further investigation of the principles outlined in the book.

is a single source of valuable information, preparing health researchers, practitioners, and students to address globally and locally the problems associated with infectious diseases.
