Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Sue C. Kehl, PhD, D (ABMM)(Medical College of Wisconsin)
Description: This year's Annual Review of Microbiology includes a diverse collection of articles covering basic and clinical microbiology. Many articles focus on molecular microbiologic mechanisms, but there are also articles of interest to the clinical investigator.
Purpose: The purpose is to review timely topics in microbiology. In this year's addition to the series, the editors focus on the numerous and diverse mechanisms employed by microorganisms. Authors recognized as experts in their field of study present these reviews.
Audience: The book covers a wide range of topics of interest to both clinical and basic microbiologists. Molecular microbiologists, geneticists, biochemists and clinical investigators will also find topics of interest.
Features: Topics included range from molecular biologic mechanisms, such as Type III secretion systems, DNA segregation in bacteria, and polyphosphate and phosphate pumps to clinical discussions covering the disease spectrum of Helicobacter pylori and the role of cytotoxic T cells in Epstein Barr virus infections. Discussions of the molecular genetics of fungi and parasites are also included, as well as a review of the environmental microbiologic safety of water. There are appropriate black-and-white illustrations highlighting major points.
Assessment: This is an excellent addition to this series. It covers such a wide range of timely topics that there is something of interest for all in the field of microbiology.
