Bacteriology of Humans: An Ecological Perspective

1st Prize, ‘New Authored Books’ category, Royal Society of Medicine and Society of Authors Medical Book Awards 2008 “Overall, I am impressed by the up-to date information content and structure provided in Bacteriology of Humans. It is truly an ecological perspective helpful for undergraduate/graduate majors in microbiology and immunology. ” –American Society for Microbiology, June 2009 ” Wilson provides the reader with an up-to-date, comprehensive census of the indigenous microorganisms that inhabit the human body and in so doing contributes significantly to this rapidly advancing area of study. The narrative is clearly written; the index is excellent; there are numerous bibliographic citations. Each chapter is rich with tables, diagrams, color micrographs, and charts … Highly recommended.” –Choice Reviews ”This comprehensive, yet accessible text… is an excellent and informative reference book… it should be on the shelf of every major science and medical library. The content, organization, and presentation make this book a unique resource.” –Doody’s Book Reviews Until recently, the indigenous microbiota of humans has been a relatively neglected area of microbiology with most attention being focused on those microbes that cause disease in humans, rather than on those that co-exist with us in the disease-free state. However, in the past decade research has shown that not only is the indigenous microbiota involved in protecting humans from exogenous pathogens but it is also involved in our development and nutrition. Consequently, interest has grown substantially among health professionals and scientists in analyzing and understanding these microbial (largely bacterial) communities. This comprehensive, yet accessible text provides an up-to-date guide to the development, composition and distribution of indigenous microbial communities of humans. With the aid of abundant colour figures, diagrams, tables and maps, it establishes links between the physicochemical factors prevailing at an anatomical site and the types of microbes to be found there. The book includes an introduction to the human-microbe symbiosis as well as an in-depth look at the main systems and organs of the human body that have an indigenous microbiota. Each chapter includes a list of references for further study. This is an excellent and informative reference book that is useful to anyone with an interest in microbiology, medical microbiology, microbial ecology, infectious diseases, immunology, human biology, medicine, dentistry, nursing, health sciences, biomedical sciences or pharmacy – it should be on the shelf of every major science and medical library. Hallmark Features: Provides a comprehensive, yet accessible, reference book on the human microbiota Lavishly illustrated with colour figures, diagrams, tables and maps Each chapter provides a list of references to promote further study Each chapter contains links to key websites Offers an ecological approach that explains why certain organisms are associated with a particular anatomical site

Microbial Proteomics: Functional Biology of Whole Organisms

Discover important lessons learned about whole organism biology via microbial proteomics This text provides an exhaustive analysis and presentation of current research in the field of microbial proteomics, with an emphasis on new developments and applications and future directions in research. The editors and authors show how and why the relative simplicity of microbes has made them attractive targets for extensive experimental manipulation in a quest for both improved disease prevention and treatment and an improved understanding of whole organism functional biology. In particular, the text demonstrates how microbial proteomic analyses can aid in drug discovery, including identification of new targets, novel diagnostic markers, and lead optimization. Each chapter is written by one or more leading experts in the field and carefully edited to ensure a consistent and thorough approach throughout. Methods, technologies, and tools associated with the most promising approaches are stressed. Key topics covered include: Microbial pathogenesis at the proteome level Whole cell modeling Structural proteomics and computational analysis Biomolecular interactions Physiological proteomics Metabolic reconstruction using proteomics data While presenting the practical utility of proteomics data, the text is also clear on the field’s current limitations, pointing to areas where further investigation is needed. Offering a state-of-the-art perspective from internationally recognized experts, this text is ideally suited for researchers and students across the gamut of genomic sciences, including biochemistry, microbiology, molecular biology, genetics, biomedical and pharmaceutical sciences, biotechnology, and veterinary science.

The Microbiology of Respiratory System Infections (Volume 1) (Clinical Microbiology Diagnosis, treatment and prophylaxis of infections, Volume 1) 1st Edition

The Microbiology of Respiratory System Infections reviews modern approaches in the diagnosis, treatment, and prophylaxis of respiratory system infections. The book is very useful for researchers, scientists, academics, medical practitioners, graduate and postgraduate students, and specialists from pharmaceutical and laboratory diagnostic companies. The book has been divided into three sections according to the types of respiratory pathogens.

The first section contains reviews on the most common and epidemiologically important respiratory viruses, such as influenza virus, severe acute respiratory system coronavirus, and recently discovered Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus.

The second section is devoted to bacterial and fungal pathogens, which discusses etiology and pathogenesis including infections in patients with compromised immune system, and infections caused by fungal pathogens, such as Aspergillus and Pneumocystis.

The third section incorporates treatment approaches against different types of bacterial infections of the lower respiratory tract. This section reviews classical antimicrobial and phytomedical approaches as well as the application of nanotechnology against respiratory pathogens.
