Bacterial Pathogenomics by Mark J. Pallen, Karen E. Nelson, Gail M. Preston

By Mark J. Pallen, Karen E. Nelson, Gail M. Preston

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

  • Explains the clinical advances that experience resulted from the appliance of bacterial genome sequencing to the research of ways bacterial pathogens have developed and the way those micro organism reason sickness.
  • 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 subject matters that lower throughout taxonomic limitations, similar to genomic signatures of intracellularity, the impression of shared genomic instruments and datasets, pathogenomics of bacterial biothreat brokers, the influence of phages at the evolution of bacterial pathogenicity, gram-positive protein secretion, cellphone 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.
