During the mid-forties bacteria and phages were dis­ covered to be suitable objects for the study of genet­ ics. Genetic phenomena such as mutation and recombina­ tion, which had already been known in eukaryotes for a long time, were now shown to exist in bacteria and phages as well. New phenomena as lysogeny and trans­ duction were discovered, which gained great importance beyond the field of microbial genetics. Bacteria and phages are of small size, multiply rapid­ ly, and have chemically defined growth requirements. Many selective procedures can be applied to screen for rarely occurring mutants or recombinants. Therefore, they offered ideal conditions to investigate genetic processes and to interpret them in molecular terms. Many new methods were developed (e. g. CsCl density gradient centrifugation) and old techniques were im­ proved and modified for new purposes (e. g. chemical mutagenesis). Hypotheses, such as the semiconservative replication of DNA, mutation by transition and trans­ version and operon regulation, have had an extraordi­ narily stimulating effect on the research in general genetics. Thus, in the past two decades, from the ge­ netics of microbes (including fungi) the field of mo­ lecular genetics developed. Many text books compete in presenting the latest knowledge on this subject. But to date there are only a few laboratory manuals which introduce the student of biology to the manifold ex­ perimental techniques of microbial and molecular gene­ tics. This laboratory manual is an attempt to redress the balance.

A Guide to Cyanobacteria: Identification and Impact

Lowest new price: $20.00
List price: $20.00
Author: Mark A. Nienaber

Blue-green algae (also known as cyanobacteria) and the toxins they can produce pose serious economic, environmental, and public health problems worldwide. Much of the scientific and public interest in these microorganisms arises from their tendency to undergo explosive population growth and form harmful blooms, which have inflicted damage in industries as diverse as health care, public utilities, agriculture, recreation, real estate, and commercial and sport fishing. Until now, water quality professionals and other individuals tasked with finding and eliminating cyanotoxins have lacked an accessible guide to these potentially deadly microorganisms.

Written for nonspecialists in a clear and straightforward style, this guide will help students, landowners, and citizen scientists identify different kinds of cyanobacteria and understand their impact on waterways, from neighborhood lakes and farm ponds to major river systems. The central feature of the book is a detailed key that systematically walks the reader through each step of the identification process. This key is linked to an extensive set of photographs and a companion smartphone app to assist readers in confirming their findings.

Authors Mark A. Nienaber and Miriam Steinitz-Kannan include an ample glossary to help newcomers to the subject get up to speed as well as an in-depth and current bibliography to aid advanced readers in further research. They also offer instructions on how to correctly collect and analyze cyanobacteria. Altogether, this accessible yet comprehensive resource makes important, complex material available to a wide range of professionals and laypeople engaged in combating harmful cyanotoxins.

The Physical Basis of Bacterial Quorum Communication (Biological and Medical Physics, Biomedical Engineering)

The Physical Basis of Bacterial Quorum Communication (Biological and Medical Physics, Biomedical Engineering) Lowest new price: $59.62
Lowest used price: $91.00
List price: $179.00

Quorum sensing (QS) describes a chemical communication behavior that is nearly universal among bacteria. Individual cells release a diffusible small molecule (an autoinducer) into their environment. A high concentration of this autoinducer serves as a signal of high population density, triggering new patterns of gene expression throughout the population. However QS is often much more complex than this simple census-taking behavior. Many QS bacteria produce and detect multiple autoinducers, which generate quorum signal cross talk with each other and with other bacterial species. QS gene regulatory networks respond to a range of physiological and environmental inputs in addition to autoinducer signals. While a host of individual QS systems have been characterized in great molecular and chemical detail, quorum communication raises many fundamental quantitative problems which are increasingly attracting the attention of physical scientists and mathematicians.  Key questions include: What kinds of information can a bacterium gather about its environment through QS? What physical principles ultimately constrain the efficacy of diffusion-based communication?  How do QS regulatory networks maximize information throughput while minimizing undesirable noise and cross talk? How does QS function in complex, spatially structured environments such as biofilms?  Previous books and reviews have focused on the microbiology and biochemistry of QS. With contributions by leading scientists and mathematicians working in the field of physical biology,  this volume examines the interplay of diffusion and signaling, collective and coupled dynamics of gene regulation, and spatiotemporal QS phenomena. Chapters will describe experimental studies of QS in natural and engineered or microfabricated bacterial environments, as well as modeling of QS on length scales spanning from the molecular to macroscopic. The book aims to educate physical scientists and quantitative-oriented biologists on the application of physics-based experiment and analysis, together with appropriate modeling, in the understanding and interpretation of the pervasive phenomenon of microbial quorum communication.


Alicyclobacillus: Thermophilic Acidophilic Bacilli

Alicyclobacillus: Thermophilic Acidophilic Bacilli Lowest new price: $168.78
Lowest used price: $168.47
List price: $229.00
Brand: Akira Yokota Tateo Fujii Keiichi Goto

Alicyclobacillus are not pathogenic bacteria, but they are troublesome, not only for consumers but also for beverage producers, because no effective control methods have yet been developed. It is against this background and in recognition of the importance and urgency of the problem that this book brings together new insights on the topic together with research published to date. The book uniquely focuses on one genus of bacteria. It aims to bring the information of Alicyclobacillus together and offer helpful understanding to control the bacteria for food industries.

List price: $160.00

Groundbreaking thinking on how bacterial metabolism is foundational to pathogenesis

For too long, bacterial metabolism and bacterial pathogenesis have been studied as separate entities. However, the scientific community is beginning to realize that not only are bacterial nutrient acquisition and utilization essential for pathogenesis, but that interfering with the pathogen-specific metabolic pathways used during infection can regulate virulence factor expression and might lead to effective breakthroughs in a variety of treatments.

Editors Paul Cohen and Tyrrell Conway, who pioneered the use of metabolic mutants in competitive colonization assays, an approach now widely used to investigate the nutrition of pathogens in vivo, are uniquely qualified to advance our knowledge of this integrative field of research. They convened a group of contributors who are breaking new ground in understanding how bacterial metabolism is foundational to pathogenesis to share their expert perspectives and outlook for the future.

Beginning with overviews, Metabolism and Bacterial Pathogenesis covers

  • a wide range of diseases and both Gram-positive and -negative bacteria that serve as model systems for in vitro and in vivo investigations
  • intracellular, respiratory, and enteric pathogens
  • pathogen-specific nutrient acquisition in hosts
  • mechanisms of host-driven metabolic adaptation by pathogens
  • metabolic regulation of virulence gene expression

Useful for specialists in bacterial pathogenesis and specialists in metabolism as well as molecular biologists, physicians, veterinarians, dentists, graduate and undergraduate students, and laboratory technicians, Metabolism and Bacterial Pathogenesis is also essential reading for scientists studying the microbiome.
