Principles of Bacterial Pathogenesis presents 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
Dr. Eduardo A. Groisman is a Professor of Molecular Microbiology at the Washington University School of Medicine and an Associate Investigator of the Howard Hughes Medical Institute. He is an accomplished microbiologist with an interest in bacterial pathogenesis investigating the regulation and function of virulence determinants and th...
