Microbial Physiology, 4th Edition
Author: Michael P. Sector (Author), Albert G. Moat (Editor), John W. Foster (Editor), Michael P. Spector (Editor)
The Fourth Edition of Microbial Physiology retains the logical, easy-to-follow organization of the previous editions. An introduction to cell structure and synthesis of cell components is provided, followed by detailed discussions of genetics, metabolism, growth, and regulation for anyone wishing to understand the mechanisms underlying cell survival and growth. This comprehensive reference approaches the subject from a modern molecular genetic perspective, incorporating new insights gained from various genome projects.
Microbial Physiology and Biochemistry Laboratory: A Quantitative Approach
Author: David White (Editor), George D. Hegeman (Editor)
Microbial Physiology and Biochemistry Laboratory illustrates the major features of growth and metabolism discussed in David White’s The Physiology and Biochemistry of Prokaryotes (OUP, 1995). It serves as an ideal adjunct to this text and can also be used in conjunction with other books for
the laboratory component of a microbial physiology course. All of the experiments described in this manual have been taught as part of a laboratory course for junior and senior biology and microbiology majors at Indiana University. In addition to reinforcing what students learn in lecture, the
experiments guide students through a wide spectrum of analytical techniques including enzyme assays, macromolecular assays, column chromatography, gel electrophoresis, and gas chromatography. Along with enzyme assays and enzyme purification, students do experiments measuring oxygen uptake,
chemotaxis, fermentation, and bacterial luminescence. The organisms studied include Escherichia, Pseudomonas, Bacillus, Proteus, Rhodospirillum, Photobacterium, and Saccharomyces. The volume is enhanced by appendices which include sections on quantitative problems and their solutions, instructions
on how to write a laboratory report, and independent projects that are extensions of the class experiments. The number of experiments exceeds the amount of material usually offered in one semester, giving instructors the option to choose those experiments that are most appropriate for their classes.
Author: Dean Watson (Editor)
This book unravels the recent studies in the field of microbial physiology. It also provides interesting topics for research which readers can take up. Microbial physiology refers to the biochemical examination of the microbial cell functions. It also includes an in-depth study of microbial metabolism, microbial growth, microbial cell structure, etc. While understanding the long-term perspectives of these topics, the book makes an effort in highlighting their impact as a modern tool for the growth of the discipline. It aims to shed light on some of the unexplored aspects and the recent researches in this area. Scientists and students actively engaged in the field of microbial physiology will find this book full of crucial and unexplored concepts.
Bacterial Metabolism (Springer Series in Microbiology)
Author: Gerhard Gottschalk (Author)
This concise yet comprehensive text surveys the field of bacterial metabolism in terms useful to students and researchers. Emphasis is on those metabolic reactions occurring only in bacteria. Thus, the book describes in detail the energy metabolism of the various groups of bacteria. In addition, it examines pathways used by bacteria for the degradation of organic compounds, the synthesis of cellular constituents, the regulation of bacterial metabolism and the fixation of molecular nitrogen.
