1. A Handbook of Practical Microbiology

Author: R. Saravanan (Author), D. Dhachinamoorthi (Author), CH. MM. Prasada Rao (Author)

The discipline of Pharmaceutical microbiology has undergone revolutionary changes in last two decades. Our understanding about microbes, their identification and controlling process are in need of Phama and health industry. The newer microbiological techniques has made in roads of understanding about microbes and their characters. It is our endeavor to provide comprehensive text book for practical microbiology to the students of degree in Pharmacy, Pharm D and Microbiology. We are thankful to Publisher Lambert Academic Publishing, European Union and staff members for their co-operation in bringing out this book.

2. Practical Handbook of Microbiology

Author: Emanuel Goldman (Editor), Lorrence H Green (Editor)

The Practical Handbook of Microbiology presents basic knowledge about working with microorganisms in a clear and concise form. It also provides in-depth information on important aspects of the field—from classical microbiology to genomics—in one easily accessible volume.

This new edition retains the easy-to-use format of previous editions, with a logical presentation of frequently used reference data that enables readers to rapidly locate the information needed.

New chapters have been included in this edition, including a noteworthy one on the business aspects of microbiology that has been added to address the needs of investors looking to understand the science behind companies that they are contemplating funding and scientists that are interested in commercializing their research. In addition, chapters have been added on new microorganism-based disease and pathogenic mechanisms.

All chapters from the previous edition have been revised and updated. Major topics covered include almost all studied bacteria, and introductions to fungi, parasites, and viruses, as well as methods of culture collection, enumeration, and preservation of microorganisms, diagnostic medical microbiology, mechanisms of antimicrobial agents, and antibiotics and antifungal agents.

Although this book will be of use to anyone interested in the subject matter, it will be of particular benefit to specialized microbiologists as well as those who simply use microbiology as an adjunct to their own discipline, in finding relevant information quickly and easily.

9. Experiments in Microbiology, Plant Pathology and Biotechnology

Author: Aneja

Microbiology and biotechnology are rapidly growing and highly dynamic fields of study and hot fields of research. Microorganisms are living organisms like plants and animals but because of their minute size and omnipresence, performing experiments with microbes require special techniques and equipment apart from good theoretical knowledge about them. This clearly written, easy-to-use, updated and expanded fifth edition provides knowledge about all the five i.e., technique, equipment, principles involved, precautions and expected results. This laboratory manual provides a wide spectrum of 191 exercises covering all aspects of bacteria, fungi, algae, viruses, in addition to genetics, plant pathology, plant tissue culture and mushroom production technology. The exercises are presented in a simple language with explanatory diagrams. Twelve appendices at the end of the manual provide a reference to the sources for obtaining cultures of microbes, preparation of various stains, reagents, buffers and media in the laboratory, and classification of prokaryotes as per the Bergey’s Manual of Systematic Bacteriology, Second Edition, published in 5 Volumes between 2001 and 2012. With the inclusion of many more easy-to-follow figures and new exercises, this edition of the manual will serve as a useful tool not only for the UG and PG students, researchers and teachers of Microbiology, Biotechnology, Agriculture, Horticulture, Forestry, Environmental Science, Food and Nutrition, Botany, Plant Pathology, Pharmacy, B.Tech., M.Tech., and Nursing but also for industrialists and professionals related to dairy, beverages, food processing, diagnostics, and mushroom producing units at small and large scale.

10. Practical Atlas for Bacterial Identification

Author: D. Roy Cullimore

Published nearly ten years ago, the first edition of Practical Atlas for Bacterial Identification broke new ground with the wealth of detail and breadth of information it provided. The second edition is poised to do the same. Differing fundamentally from the first edition, this book begins by introducing the concept of bacteria community intelligence as reflected in corrosion, plugging, and shifts in the quality parameters in the product whether it be water, gas, oil, or even air. It presents a new classification system for bacterial communities based upon their effect and activities, and not their composition.

The book represents a radical departure from the classical reductionist identification of bacteria dominated by genetic and biochemical analyses of separated strains. The author takes a holistic approach based on form, function, and habitat of communities (consorms) of bacteria in real environments. He uses factors related to the oxidation-reduction potential at the site where the consorm is active and the viscosity of the bound water within that consorm to position their community structures within a two-dimensional bacteriological positioning system (BPS) that then allows the functional role to be defined. This book has an overarching ability to define bacterial activities as consorms in a very effective and applied manner useful to an applied audience involved in bacterial challenges.

Organized for ease of use, the book allows readers to start with the symptom, uncover the bacterial activities, and then indentify the communities distinctly enough to allow management and control practices that minimize the damage. The broad spectrum approach, new to this edition, lumps compatible bacteria together into a relatively harmonious consortia that share a common primary purpose. It gives a big picture view of the role of bacteria not as single strains but collectively as communities and uses this information to provide key answers to common bacterial problems.

14. Practical Microbiology

Author: D.R. Arora (Author), Bharti Arora (Author)

PRACTICAL MICROBIOLOGY-for qualifying an examination, a microbiology student has to get through theory & practical exams separately. Though a large number of theory books in microbiology are available, no good book covering practical aspects is available. Keeping in view the above, a simple and comprehensive book on practical aspects of all sections of microbiology has been devised. This book has been divided into nine parts that include general bacteriology, serology/immunology, parasitology, systemic bacteriology, mycology, virology, recent advances, spots and appendices. Each practical exercise ends with important questions and their answers which help the student to prepare for theory, practical and viva voce examination. This book is meant for MBBS, BDS, BSc, BSc MLT, MSc, MSc MLT, MD Microbiology students and technical staff of medical (clinical) laboratories. It is a bench book containing well tried methods. This will also help the students preparing for postgraduate entrance examination. 1 general bacteriology. 2 serology/immunology. 3 parasitology. 4 systemic bacteriology. 5 mycology. 6 virology. 7 recent advances. 8 spots. 9 appendices.
