If you are searching for best Books for BHU PET Applied Microbiology, than here is the list;
1. Prescott’s Microbiology by Joanne Willey, Linda Sherwood Adjunt Professor Lecturer, Christopher J. Woolverton Professor
The author team of Prescott’s Microbiology continues the tradition of past editions by providing a balanced, comprehensive introduction to all major areas of microbiology. This balance makes Microbiology appropriate for microbiology majors and mixed majors courses. The authors have introduced a number of pedagogical elements designed to facilitate student learning. They also remain focused on readability, artwork, and the integration of several key themes (including evolution, ecology and diversity) throughout the text, making an already superior text even better.
2. iGenetics: A Molecular Approach by Peter J. Russell
iGenetics: A Molecular Approach reflects the dynamic nature of modern genetics by emphasizing an experimental, inquiry-based approach with a solid treatment of many research experiments. The text is ideally suited for students who have had some background in biology and chemistry and who are interested in learning the central concepts of genetics.
Problem solving is a major feature of the text and students have the opportunity to apply critical thinking skills to a variety of problems at the end of each chapter. Pedagogical features such as “Principal Points,” at the beginning of each chapter, and “Keynotes,” strategically placed throughout the chapter, are useful learning tools.
The iGenetics CD-ROM and the companion website contain 25 activities and 59 narrated animations, all of which are based on text figures, to help students visualize complex processes and challenging concepts they encounter in the main text.
An intense developmental effort, along with numerous third-party reviews of both text and media, ensure the highest degree of accuracy.
3. Kuby Immunology by Jenni Punt, Sharon Stranford, Patricia Jones, Judith A Owen
Janis Kuby’s groundbreaking introduction to immunology was the first textbook for the course actually written to be a textbook. Like no other text, it combined an experimental emphasis with extensive pedagogical features to help students grasp basic concepts.
Now in a thoroughly updated new edition, Kuby Immunology remains the only undergraduate introduction to immunology written by teachers of the course. In the Kuby tradition, authors Judy Owen, Jenni Punt, and Sharon Stranford present the most current concepts in an experimental context, conveying the excitement of scientific discovery, and highlight important advances, but do so with the focus on the big picture of the study of immune response, enhanced by unsurpassed pedagogical support for the first-time learner.
4. Microbiology with Diseases by Taxonomy by Bauman Robert W.
Were you looking for the book with access to MasteringMicrobiology? This product is the book alone and does NOT come with access to MasteringMicrobiology. Buy the book and access card package and save money on this resource.
The Fourth Edition of Microbiology with Diseases by Taxonomy is the most cutting-edge microbiology book available, offering unparalleled currency, accuracy and assessment. The state-of-the-art approach includes 18 new Video Tutors written and developed by the author to walk students through key microbiology concepts, bringing the textbook to life. QR codes in the textbook enable students to use their smartphone or tablet to instantly interact with these step-by-step tutorials and visualize important concepts and processes. Compelling clinical case studies and emerging disease case studies give students opportunities to apply new knowledge and explore real-world microbiology. Student comprehension is ensured with end-of-chapter practice that encompasses both visual and conceptual understanding. This edition retains the hallmark art program and clear writing style that have made Dr. Robert W. Bauman’s book an engaging and successful introductory text.
Organization and Currency
The taxonomic organization of the disease chapters (Chapters 19—25) presents microbial diseases by type of pathogenic microbe, helping students recognize shared characteristics among categories of microbes.
Chapter 3 (Cell Structure and Function) de-emphasizes the term ”prokaryote” (a term that is based on an outdated perception of taxonomy and is thus misleading to students) and instead emphasizes the three domains of living organisms, matching the latest taxonomic research. This state-of-the-science organization sets this book apart from all other allied health microbiology books.
The immunology chapters (Chapters 15—18), which have been and continue to be reviewed in-depth by immunology specialists, reflect the most current understanding of this rapidly-evolving field of any microbiology book available.
Student Interest Features
Microbe-at-a-Glance boxes showcase representative microbes in each of the disease chapters. They feature an illustration of a microbe accompanied by very brief summaries of taxonomy, morphology, virulence factors, diseases caused and treatment/prevention. These “snapshots” also appear as flashcards on the book’s website, giving students extra “on-the-go” practice and review opportunities.
Beneficial Microbe boxes emphasize the practical or benevolent nature and uses of microbes and help students overcome the common misconception that all microbes cause disease.
Clinical Case Study and Emerging Disease Case Study boxes are written in an engaging narrative voice and feature a patient’s experience with microbial diseases and follow-up critical thinking questions for students. Additional activities and the latest information about emerging diseases are online in the Study Area of MasteringMicrobiology (www.masteringmicrobiology.com).
Highlight boxes appear throughout the text and focus on interesting topics in microbiology; e.g., what causes that “fishy” smell in fish markets, what allows some organisms to glow in the dark, how gold-mining microbes are used and which cutting-edge molecular techniques are used in microbiology.
