This comprehensive, interdisciplinary book covers different aspects of relevant human pathogens and commensals. The ongoing development of (meta-)genomic, transcriptomic, proteomic and bioinformatic analyses of pathogenic and commensal microorganisms and their host interaction provides a comprehensive introduction to the microbiological analysis of host-microbe interplay and its consequences for infection or commensalism.

Aus den Rezensionen:


". Der Leser erhält einen gut strukturierten und umfangreichen Überblick über Zusammensetzung und metabolische Aktivität der DarmMikrobiota ... Das Buch richtet sich in erster Linie an Fachwissenschaftler und stellt insgesamt auf Grund der hohen Qualität der meisten Beiträge eine Bereicherung für jede Universitätsbibliothek dar."
