Microbial Subversion of Host Cellsby C. D. O'Connor
Pub. Date: 06/28/2003
Publisher: Cambridge University Press
Microbes have co-evolved over time with other organisms to the extent that some are so acquainted with host cell biology that they subvert key cellular processes with unrivalled precision. This volume reviews this exciting new discipline, reflecting the recent explosion of knowledge as well as broader insights into fundamental cellular processes. C.

Microbes have co-evolved over time with other organisms to the extent that some are so acquainted with host cell biology that they subvert key cellular processes with unrivalled precision. This volume reviews this exciting new discipline, reflecting the recent explosion of knowledge as well as broader insights into fundamental cellular processes. C. David O'Connor and David Smith cover the salient aspects by using a range of model systems.
