Tuberculosis, Leprosy and Other Mycobacterial Diseases of Man and Animals: The Many Hosts of Mycobacteria

Tuberculosis, Leprosy and Other Mycobacterial Diseases of Man and Animals: The Many Hosts of Mycobacteria Lowest new price: $140.72
Lowest used price: $148.45
List price: $212.95

Mycobacteria are bacterial pathogens which cause diseases in humans and non-human animals. This monograph will primarily cover the most important and widely researched groups of mycobacteria: members of the Mycobacterium tuberculosis complex (MTC) and Mycobacterium leprae, across a wide range of host species. M. tuberculosis and M. bovis are particularly relevant with the increasing drug resistance and co-infection with HIV and the possible cross-infection of badgers and cattle associated with M. bovis. This ideal reference for researchers working in different fields draws together information on different pathogens, and by considering the diseases in a zoonotic context provides a One Health approach to these important groups of diseases.


Modern Potting Composts: A Manual on the Preparation and Use of Growing Media for Pot Plants

Modern Potting Composts: A Manual on the Preparation and Use of Growing Media for Pot Plants Lowest used price: $33.00
List price: $29.95
Author: A.C. Bunt

The materials used in the preparation of composts for pot plants are changing rapidly. This book explains their nature and use as part of a range of new growing systems. Mineral soils, which formed the basis of the John Innes type of compost, are increasingly scare and expensive, and growers are having to deal with radically different materials such as plastic foam and shredded bark. Together with improved technology, these represent new systems of growing, and not simply changes of compost.The new materials give results which are equal or even superior to those obtained by traditional means, providing their individual characteristics and requirements are understood. They are likely to be used with new types of fertilizers, new methods of heat sterilization and chemical sterilizing agents. They are part of systems which rely increasingly on a technology of growing that has been subject to extensive change and development during the past two decades- glasshouses designed to give maximum light transmission, automatic heating and ventialating systems, carbon dioxide enrichment of the atmosphere, controlled photo periods enabling certain plants to flower at any time of the year, mist propagation techniques, chemical growth regulators, automatic watering and feeding systems... and these are only part of the story.Much of the information is based on previously unpublished studies made by the author at the Glasshouse Crops Research Institute. He also draws on his experience at the John Innes Institute and on the results of experimental work carried out in many countries, in particular the U.S.A., The Netherlands, Scandinavia, and West Germany.The book is written for the professional horticulturist, and a pre-publication review suggests that it is likely to be regarded as 'the nurseryman's Bible and the research and experimental worker's source book.' It is the only authoritative, up t date, book-length treatment of the subject in English.


Bergey's Manual of Systematic Bacteriology: Volume One : The Archaea and the Deeply Branching and Phototrophic Bacteria (BERGEY'S MANUAL OF SYSTEMATIC BACTERIOLOGY 2ND EDITION)

Bergey's Manual of Systematic Bacteriology: Volume One : The Archaea and the Deeply Branching and Phototrophic Bacteria (BERGEY'S MANUAL OF SYSTEMATIC BACTERIOLOGY 2ND EDITION) Lowest new price: $47.00
Lowest used price: $9.25
List price: $179.99

Bacteriologists from all levels of expertise and within all specialties rely on this Manual as one of the most comprehensive and authoritative works. Since publication of the first edition of the Systematics, the field has undergone revolutionary changes, leading to a phylogenetic classification of prokaryotes based on sequencing of the small ribosomal subunit. The list of validly named species has more than doubled since publication of the first edition, and descriptions of over 2000 new and realigned species are included in this new edition along with more in-depth ecological information about individual taxa and extensive introductory essays by leading authorities in the field.

Molecular Genetics of Bacteria

Molecular Genetics of Bacteria Lowest new price: $30.00
Lowest used price: $3.98
List price: $99.95
Author: Larry Snyder
Brand: Brand: Amer Society for Microbiology

"Molecular Genetics of Bacteria" fulfills the need for a comprehensive, primary textbook in bacterial genetics. It is ideally suited as a textbook for advanced undergraduate level courses and as background reading for graduate level courses. It is also recommended reading for scientists in all fields of biology, many of which depend upon the concepts and techniques covered in this book. While the book concentrates on the necessity of the bacterium Escherichia coli, about which most is known, it also uses examples from other bacteria as appropriate. The material in each chapter has been substantially updated to reflect exciting developments in the field of bacterial molecular genetics and its relationship to other fields, including eukaryotic cell biology and development. Recent years have been a period of consolidation in biology with many seemingly diverse areas being discovered to be different manifestations of the same phenomenon; these relationships have been emphasized. It has also been a period of major technical advances, including genomics and microarrays, which are also covered in the book. The second edition retains the same organization and style as the first edition, and the order of presentation of the topics has been largely unchanged as this order was popular with most instructors using the textbook. As before, each chapter contains a chapter summary, a set of discussion questions to encourage speculation, problems (with answers), and suggested readings, all of which are updated to reflect advances in the field. It also retains the use of boxes to present related material of interest to each topic without breaking the continuity of the text. The second edition will continue to serve as an important text for all courses in bacterial molecular genetics and as background for courses in molecular biology and biotechnology. New to the second edition: substantially updated to reflect developments in the field of bacterial molecular genetics; chapters begin with descriptive treatment of each topic and end with more technical molecular genetic experiments the led to the knowledge; and new chapter on molecular genetic applications in bacteria, including genetic studies of sporulation, bacterial development, and protein translocation.

Plasmids: A Practical Approach (Practical Approach Series)

Plasmids: A Practical Approach (Practical Approach Series) Lowest new price: $53.31
Lowest used price: $7.90
List price: $165.00

This completely updated and revised second edition of Plasmids: A Practical Approach provides the researcher with detailed protocols for studying bacterial plasmids and for using plasmids and phagemids as vectors. With many new sections and protocols, it is the most up-to-date reference describing the techniques for the study of plasmid replication and maintenance, the fundamental methods for purifying plasmids and introducing them into cells, and the protocols for the mutagenesis and analysis of plasmid-encoded products. The book features further techniques for the study of plasmids and the use of plasmid vectors in such important groups of bacteria as animal and plant pathogens harboring virulence plasmids, Streptomyces, and lactococci. Plus, the book describes the use of plasmid composite vectors for expression of cDNA cloning, and much more. It is a invaluable reference for molecular biologists, microbiologists, and biotechnology researchers. It includes detailed protocols for studying bacterial plasmids and for using both plasmids and phagemids as vectors, techniques for studying fundamental aspects of plasmids, such as replication, are included, as well as methods for using plasmid vectors in important groups of bacteria. Also described are protocols for using phagemids, which are extremely useful tools for genetic engineering.
