Microbial Physiology 4th Edition
by Michael P. Sector and Albert G. Moat
Microbial Physiology 4th Edition retains the logical, easy-to-follow organization of the previous editions. An introduction to cell structure and synthesis of cell components is provided, followed by detailed discussions of genetics, metabolism, growth, and regulation for anyone wishing to understand the mechanisms underlying cell survival and growth. This comprehensive reference approaches the subject from a modern molecular genetic perspective, incorporating new insights gained from various genome projects.
“…a useful addition to the library of any teach or researcher in microbiology.” (Biomolecular Engineering, March 2003)”…expanded and reorganized based upon the rapid growth in the field since the last edition…highly recommended…” (E-Streams, Vol.5, No. 12, December 2002)
“Microbial Physiology 4th Edition by Moat, Foster, and Spector is much improved compared to previous editions. The graphics in particular are vastly enhanced, making this a very useful book.” (ASM News)
“Microbial Physiology 4th Edition is the best available text in the field today and a must for any microbiologist needing an up-to-date knowledge of the biochemistry and molecular biology of metabolism in microorganisms…. I recommend it highly!” —Alan D. Antoine, Ph.D., Dept. of Biochemistry & Microbiology, Rutgers University”[Microbial Physiology, Fourth Edition] will be welcomed as a book for teaching at several levels, and as a handbook for reasearchers in various fields of microbial physiology.” —Arthur L. Koch, Biology Department, Indiana University, Bloomington, IN
