Название: Horizontal Gene Transfer in Evolution and Pathogenesis (Advances in Molecular and Cellular Microbiology)
Авторы: Hensel M., Schmidt H.
Due to my evolving research, this book is as timely as it is well written. While the approach taken is predominantly a molecular genetics view to microbial adhesion, the chapter authors & editor have presented the wealth of information on this topic in a well organized manner.
Each chapter is well organized and every theory given is then supported with examples of scientific evidence. At the end of each chapter are pages of references that I have used to further my research (as will anyone else interested in this topic).
For the graphics, the editor has done an excellent job culling out the best. From basic gene/operon diagrams to electron micrographs to color plates and photographs, the authors and editor have judicially provided only sound clear graphics.
If you want a book that will provide a molecular approach to bacterial adhesion, this is an excellent starting point. While a few chapters are too limited in their applicablity to the overall solution of this issue, the rest more than make up for these minor shortfalls.
Keep in mind, this book is not for the novice from just any field of microbiology. Then again, neither is the subject. If you are involved in this growing field of research, this book will be an invaluable addition to your library.
