Meet the bacteria, viruses, and other germs and microbes that are all around, but too small for us to see. Learn how they keep us and our world running. What do a squid that glows, fungus that grows, and tiny creatures in the soil under your toes all have in common? They're all part of the world of microbiology! In this awesome book for kids, scientist Steve Mould reveals fun and fascinating facts about bacteria, viruses, and other germs and microbes. The Bacteria Book explores why we need bacteria, and introduces readers to its microbial mates - viruses, fungi, algae, and protozoa. Bacteria are the most important living organisms on Earth, and 99 per cent of them are helpful, not harmful. Without bacteria, we wouldn't have bread or cheese, and our bodies wouldn't be able to work how we need them to. Microbes keep us and our world running in surprising ways. This book will show you how, through real-life examples of microbiology in action. The Bacteria Book is a fun and informative introduction to a STEAM subject that brings kids up-close with the big world of tiny science. With remarkable photography, kooky character illustrations, and lots of fun facts that toe the line between "ew!" and "oh!", it's the only book on microbiology young scientists won't want to put down.

The reviews in this volume deal with questions of the mechanisms of pathogenesis and with organisms that have only recently been extensively studied on the molecular level.**The introductory section presents an overview of pathogenesis, emphasizing common elements and genetic mechanisms of regulation and a review on the population genetics of bacterial pathogenesis. The second section deals with the regulation of synthesis of surface components and their role in the colonization of the host and/or of the host immune systems. The third section covers the invasion and intracellular growth of facultative and obligate intracellular parasites. The last section is devoted to studies of the role of bacterial toxic products in pathogenesis.

We live in a society that is currently experiencing a dramatic rise in chronic and unexplainable illnesses like chronic fatigue syndrome and fibromyalgia. Despite medical advances in recent years, mainstream solutions to these conditions are often too little, too late. We are also witnessing the emergence of new and powerful pathogens or "superbugs" that threaten to undermine the very foundations of modern medicine. In response, many medical experts now believe that today's most menacing health threat is harbored within the body, not lurking outside it. In this book, author and naturopathic physician Skye Weintraub outlines how bacteria may be at the root of many of today's chronic health conditions, and explains how to effectively build immunity and protect one's self from these dangerous agents, without the help of antibiotics. Citing the most recent research on the subject, she argues that the body's "inner terrain" is where the battle for health is really won or lost.

In this manual, protocols for the transformation of about 40 strains of bacteria are described, with the emphasis placed on the individual critical procedural steps, since the practical details mainly depend on the bacterial strain under investigation. This presentation together with the theoretical introductionary chapters, allows users to modify and adapt each protocol to their own experiments. Bacterial strains with relevance in the food industry, biotechnology, medical and veterinary fields, agroindustry and environmental sciences are covered.

For many years there has been a need for an up-to-date advanced textbook on bacterial genetics. Genetics of Bacteria has been designed for this purpose. The text is primarily intended for students who are close to or already engaged in research involving bacteria. An introductory chapter has been included for newcomers to the field. Each chapter has a supplementary reading list and detailed references for the topic in question.The book covers all the major genetic aspects of bacteria, their plasmids, and phages mutation: gene transfer and recombination, the transposition of genetic elements, the mechanism and control of gene expression. Special emphasis is placed on Escherichia coli . In addition, Bacillus subtilis is introduced, a Gram-positive organism which has unique features as a genetic system. For those wishing to study other bacteria a list of helpful references is provided at the end of Chapter One.From the Preface:Bacterial systems have several major roles to play in molecular biology. They contribute to the analysis of fundamental biological processes: mutation, replication, recombination and transposition, and the expression of genes and the processing of their products. In addition, bacteria occupy a pivotal position in recombinant DNA technology, allowing the genetic material of many organisms to be analyzed and expressed. Equally, genetic manipulation in vivo provides an approach in the analysis of genes and their products which complements both classical studies and in vitro cloning techniques. We discuss here the major aspects of manipulation in vivo including genetic fusions and the different kinds of transposable elements. This book should be particularly valuable to gene cloners in this respect and as an account of the basic biology of the bacteria, phages, and plasmids commonly used in their work.The purpose of this book is to give an up-to-date account of the molecular genetics of bacteria for advanced students and new recruits to research using bacterial systems. To this end each chapter reviews a topic of central importance and provides a list of major references for those active in the field. We have not intended the lists to be exhaustive since we refer the reader to current review articles on specialist topics. For the benefit of new recruits we provide an introductory chapter discussing the basic concepts of bacterial genetics and the organization of phage The material presented is intended to illustrate the underlying principles in the field. It is based on the large body of work which has exploited the gram-negative organism Escherichia coli over the years. In addition, we introduce the gram-positive Bacillus subtilis which has unique features as a genetic system. Those wishing to study other bacteria will find a list of helpful references at the end of Chapter 1.

The bacterial cell wall represents a very complex structure disconnecting the interior of single-cell organisms from the environment, thus protecting, but also enabling, them to interact with the surrounding milieu and to exchange both substances and information. Knowledge of the biochemistry of the cell wall (components) and the genetic background helps to understand their significance with regard to microbiology and immunology of bacteria. This book represents the second edition of a publication which was presented nearly 20 years ago in the German language (Die bakterielle Zellwand). Since that time our knowledge in this field has been significantly enlarged. Therefore, the manuscript had to be completely revised and updated. To maintain both the size and the introductory character of the book at least to a great extent, the authors had to restrict the presented material to that which appears basic and most important. This requirement must inevitably bring about many subjective factors. As pointed out in the first edition, the term cell wall was not taken too strictly. Since the constituents located outside the cytoplasmic membrane are frequently difficult to divide in structure, localisation, and/or function into true cell wall components and supplementary substances, they are all at least briefly mentioned.

This book provides a detailed account of the physico-chemical properties and biological functions of the outer membrane vesicles (OMVs) of different pathogenic and non-pathogenic Gram-negative bacteria. It also includes an authentic record of the first systematic study that discovered the mechanism of OMV formation by a pathogen, Vibrio cholerae, and proposed that the process represented a novel secretory activity of bacteria. Furthermore, the authors present clinical and laboratory data on the use of OMVs as immunogens, as effective and licensed vaccines against Neisseria meningitidis serogroup B infections and on the development of more effective vaccines against other human and animal pathogens including Vibrio cholerae. This volume thus bears witness to the emerging revolution in the field of vaccines against pathogens and closes with a discussion of open questions and future research on OMVs.
