Microbiology with diseases by body system
The reemergence of whooping cough, mumps, and measles and the emergence of Zika virus infections, spotted fever rickettsioses, Middle East respiratory syndrome, and other diseases; cases of strep throat, MRSA, and tuberculosis; the progress of research into microbial genetics; the challenge of increasingly drug-resistant pathogens; the continual discovery of microorganisms previously unknown—these are just a few examples of why exploring microbiology has never been more exciting, or more important. Welcome!
I have taught microbiology to undergraduates for over 30 years and witnessed firsthand how students struggle with the same topics and concepts year after year. To address these challenging topics, I have created new Video Tutors: four in addition to those already incorporated into the first 18 chapters of the text and ten that cover the Disease in Depth features. The Video Tutors and Disease in Depth features walk students through key concepts in microbiology, bringing the art of the textbook to life and important concepts into view. In creating this textbook, my aim was to help students see complex topics of microbiology—especially metabolism, genetics, and immunology in a way that they can understand, while at the same time presenting a thorough and accurate overview of microbiology. I also wished to highlight the many positive effects of microorganisms on our lives, along with the medically important microorganisms that cause disease.
