This highly anticipated update of the acclaimed textbook draws on the latest research to give students the knowledge and tools to explore the mechanisms by which bacterial pathogens cause infections in humans and animals. Written in an approachable and engaging style, the book uses illustrative examples and thought-provoking exercises to inspire students with the potential excitement and fun of scientific discovery.

Completely revised and updated, and for the first time in stunning full-color, Bacterial Pathogenesis: A Molecular Approach, Fourth Edition, builds on the core principles and foundations of its predecessors while expanding into new concepts, key findings, and cutting-edge research, including new developments in the areas of the microbiome and CRISPR as well as the growing challenges of antimicrobial resistance. All-new detailed illustrations help students clearly understand important concepts and mechanisms of the complex interplay between bacterial pathogens and their hosts. Study questions at the end of each chapter challenge students to delve more deeply into the topics covered, and hone their skills in reading, interpreting, and analyzing data, as well as devising their own experiments. A detailed glossary defines and expands on key terms highlighted throughout the book. Written for advanced undergraduate, graduate, and professional students in microbiology, bacteriology, and pathogenesis, this text is a must-have for anyone looking for a greater understanding of virulence mechanisms across the breadth of bacterial pathogens.

Trykt eller digital bog?

Ud over trykte bøger tilbyder vi tre forskellige typer af digitale bøger:


Vital Source Bookshelf: En velfungerende ebogsplatform, hvor bogen downloades til din computer og/eller mobile enhed.


Du skal bruge den gratis Bookshelf software til at læse læse bøgerne - der er indbygget gode værktøjer til f.eks. søgning, overstregning, notetagning mv. I langt de fleste tilfælde vil du samtidig have en sideløbende 1825 dages online adgang. Læs mere om Vital Source bøger


Levering: I forbindelse med købet opretter du et login. Når du har installeret Bookshelf softwaren, logger du blot ind og din bog downloades automatisk.



Adobe ebog: Dette er Adobe DRM ebøger som downloades til din lokale computer eller mobil enhed.


For at læse bøgerne kræves særlig software, som understøtter denne type. Softwaren er gratis, men du bør sikre at du har rettigheder til installere software på den maskine du påtænker at anvende den på. Læs mere om Adobe DRM bøger


Levering: Et download link sendes pr email umiddelbart efter købet.


Ibog: Dette er en online bog som kan læses på udgiverens website. 

Der kræves ikke særlig software, bogen læses i en almindelig browser.


Levering: Vores medarbejder sender dig en adgangsnøgle pr email.
