Changes marking the 9th edition of this authoritative resource include the omission of the chapter on pathogenic and indigenous microorganisms of humans (now discussed in individual organism chapters), and the addition of chapters on coronaviruses, Hendra and Nipah viruses, metapneumoviruses, parechoviruses, mycotoxins, as well as new chapters on the topics of anaerobes, helminths, and parasitology. Material retained from the previous edition has been updated, thousands of new references have been added, and a number of new editors and authors were hired to offer a more international scope. Extensive practical information is provided on the design, management, and operation of a diagnostic lab. Assuring that the most current knowledge and practice would be included, fifteen subject specialists edited the text's various sections and over a third of the authors who contributed chapters are new to this edition. Murray is with the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, Maryland.
