Aimed at upper-division undergraduates, this textbook uses paradigms, rather than a series of facts, to introduce students to the most current advances in microbiology. The key concepts are illustrated through compelling examples and are reinforced in each chapter with thought-provoking study questions. The text covers microbial activity; structure and function; growth, inheritance, physiology and diversity; and biological interactions. It has two companion websites, the Microbe website and the BrainX E-Learning System study guide.
