Details development within the fast-changing international of bacterial genomics.

  • Explains the clinical advances that experience resulted from the applying of bacterial genome sequencing to the research of the way bacterial pathogens have advanced and the way those micro organism reason affliction.
  • Reviews the effect of genomics on our realizing of chosen teams of pathogens, together with Escherichia coli, mycobacteria, Neisseria, staphylococci, spirochetes, Campylobacter, plant pathogens, and Photorhabdus.
  • Covers topics that lower throughout taxonomic barriers, corresponding to genomic signatures of intracellularity, the impression of shared genomic instruments and datasets, pathogenomics of bacterial biothreat brokers, the impression of phages at the evolution of bacterial pathogenicity, gram-positive protein secretion, phone wall biosynthesis, and intracellular pathogens.
  • Serves as a source for any bacteriology study and as a key textual content for college students of bacterial genomics and the molecular foundation of bacterial infection.
