Oral Microbiology and Immunology

In the second edition of best-selling textbook Oral Microbiology and Immunology, an international panel of editors presents an in-depth, comprehensive understanding of the oral ecosystem and its role in human health and disease. Written specifically for dental students, dental practitioners, and healthcare professionals, Oral Microbiology and Immunology cohesively details the ecology, virulence, molecular biology, and immunogenicity of oral bacteria, viruses, and fungi and examines their interfaces with host cells and secretions.

This new edition addresses the technological and conceptual advances that have increased our understanding of the etiology of oral diseases and the nature of pathogenic mechanisms and the host response, including:

  • Genome sequencing of a bacterium or a community of bacteria.
  • Knockout mice deficient in specific components of both the innate and adaptive immune systems.
  • High-resolution and 3D imaging techniques of communities growing in biofilms and the intimate interactions between microbes and host cells.

    Microbes: Concepts and Applications

    Features: Used Book in Good Condition
    By (author): Prakash S. Bisen, Mousumi Debnath, G. B. Prasad

    An accessible introduction to the world of microbes—from basic microbe biology through industrial applications

    Microbes affect our lives in a variety of ways—playing an important role in our health, food, agriculture, and environment. While some microbes are beneficial, others are pathogenic or opportunistic.

    Microbes: Concepts and Applications describes basic microbe biology and identification and shows not only how they operate in the subfields of medicine, biotechnology, environmental science, bioengineering, agriculture, and food science, but how they can be harnessed as a resource. It provides readers with a solid grasp of etiologic agents, pathogenic processes, epidemiology, and the role of microbes as therapeutic agents.

    Placing a major emphasis on omics technology, the book covers recent developments in the arena of microbes and discusses their role in industry and agriculture, as well as in related fields such as immunology, cell biology, and molecular biology. It offers complete discussions of the major bacterial, viral, fungal, and parasitic pathogens; includes information on emerging infectious diseases, antibiotic resistance, and bioterrorism; and talks about the future challenges in microbiology.

    The most complete treatment of microbial biology available, Microbes features eye-opening chapters on:

    • Human and Microbial World
    • Gene Technology: Application and Techniques
