Summary: Molecular Genetics of Bacteria fulfills the need for a comprehensive, primary textbook in bacterial and microbial genetics. Ideally suited as a textbook for advanced undergraduate level courses and as background reading for graduate level courses, this book presents an interesting, modern perspective of the subject and offers descriptive background information, descriptions of experimental methods and data interpretation, examples of genetic analysis, and advanced material rel ...show moreevant to current applications of molecular genetics in biotechnology. The theme of genetic analysis is used to integrate all of the concepts presented in the text, with recombinant DNA techniques covered in their own chapters. While the genetics of E. coli are used throughout the book because of the extensive work done with this organism, many other microbial systems are introduced in order to show the breadth and diversity of the discipline of bacterial genetics. Chapters are pedagogically constructed and end with a review of key concepts, a set of discussion questions, a set of problems for exercise and testing assignments, and answers to the questions. An end-of-book glossary reviews all of the key terms found in the text. This book, extensively reviewed and class tested by instructors over the past four years, serves as an important text for all courses in bacterial molecular genetics and as background for courses in molecular biology and biotechnology. ...show lessEdition/Copyright: 97
