Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Enterococci are antibiotic-resistant bacteria that have acquired resistance genes to counter the antibiotics that were once effective. This book reviews work in the field, covering the pathogenesis of infection, molecular biology, and antibiotic resistance. Specific topics include nonhuman reservoirs of enterococci, the enterococcal cell wall, plasmids and transposons, and conjugation and genetic exchange in enterococci. The book is of interest to those dealing with the consequences of antibiotic-resistant infection, those engaged in enterococcal research, and those searching for a scientific basis for public policy decisions. Material originated at a winter 2000 conference held in Banff, Canada. Gilmore is affiliated with the departments of ophthalmology and microbiology at the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
