Principles of Bacterial Pathogenesispresents a molecular perspective on a select group of bacterial pathogens by having the leaders of the field present their perspective in a clear and authoritative manner. Each chapter contains a comprehensive review devoted to a single pathogen. Several chapters include work from authors outside the pathogenesis field, providing general perspectives on the evolution, regulation, and secretion of virulence and determinants.
* Explains the basic principles of bacterial pathogenesis
* Covers diverse aspects integrating regulation, cellular microbiology and evolution of microbial disease of humans
* Discusses current strategies for the identification of virulence determinants and the methods used by microbes to deliver virulence factors
* Presents authoritative treatises of the major disease microorganisms
