Atlas of Mycobacterium Tuberculosis reveals in-depth information about mycobacterium tuberculosis which has never before been reported. Using atomic force microscopy (AFM), the in-depth phenotypic interaction that occurs in different stages of the tuberculosis lifecycle is illustrated, including resting, exponential, and dormant states.
Coverage also includes the macroscopic and microscopic anatomy of mycobacterium, including pigmentation, morphology of colonies, size and shape, and the phenotypic changes from susceptible to resistant, all shown with images from electronic and atomic force microscopes.
This book will open a new window into the results of molecular changes at the cellular level, guiding researchers and scientists to think in new ways about the area of cell wall and the reproductive and drug resistance phenomena surrounding tuberculosis.
- Identifies the different stages and morphological aspects of mycobacterium tuberculosis with the use of new microscopy techniques
- Includes never-before-seen photographs from the personal collection and scientific achievement of the authors
- Outlines the nature of the lifecycle of mycobacterium tuberculosis in relation to adaptation in humans
