Bifidobacteria are a microbial group widely found in the gut and frequently used as probiotic organisms for the alleviation and treatment of intestinal disorders. This volume, edited by Mayo (microbiology and biochemistry, Instituto de Productos Lacteos de Asturias, Spain) and van Sinderen (microbiology and alimentary pharmabiotics, U. College Cork, Ireland), gathers recent molecular-oriented data on the physiology and genetics of bifidobacteria in order to provide microbiologists, gastroenterologists, pediatricians, nutritionists, and other interested parties with an overview of current knowledge about the bacteria. Topics include molecular identification, genetic manipulation, genomics, metabolism, application aspects, and interactions with hosts. Distributed in the US by ISBS.
