Overview

This volume contains reprints of 24 important articles published in 2004 in the field of microbiology. It opens with Arnold L. Demain's (formerly of MIT) reflections on his long career in industry and academia studying microbial products. Other topics include (for example) herpes vector-mediated gene transfer in treatment of diseases; the ecology and genetics of microbial diversity; circadian rhythms in microorganisms; and the biosysnthesis of nonribosomal peptides. The volume concludes with a discussion of endangered Antarctic environments. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
