Staphylococcus Epidermidis: Methods and Protocols

Overview

Due to the highly collaborative nature of investigators working in the field, we have rapidly advanced our understanding of Staphylococcus epidermidis and other staphylococci in the last two decades. The chapters in Staphylococcus Epidermidis: Methods and Prools are designed to give the new investigator a series of tools so they can ask novel and exciting questions related to the biology of this opportunistic pathogen, as many exciting and unexplored questions such as defining the interaction of S. epidermidis ...

Overview

Due to the highly collaborative nature of investigators working in the field, we have rapidly advanced our understanding of Staphylococcus epidermidis and other staphylococci in the last two decades. The chapters in Staphylococcus Epidermidis: Methods and Prools are designed to give the new investigator a series of tools so they can ask novel and exciting questions related to the biology of this opportunistic pathogen, as many exciting and unexplored questions such as defining the interaction of S. epidermidis and other normal flora remain to be discovered. Written in the successful Methods in Molecular Biology series format, chapters include introductions to their respective topics, lists of the necessary materials and reagents, step-by-step, readily reproducible prools, and notes on troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls.

Authoritative and easily accessible, Staphylococcus Epidermidis: Methods and Prools seeks to serve both professionals and novices with its well-honed methodologies.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Valerie L. Ng, PhD MD(Alameda County Medical Center/Highland Hospital)
Description: This 19-chapter book is entirely focused on everything you might ever want to know about Staphylococcus epidermidis.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide a "series of tools to ask novel and exciting questions related to the biology of Staphylococcus epidermidis and other staphylococci."
Audience: This book would be of great interest to anyone working with Staphylococcus epidermidis, particularly those in a research setting. This audience spans translational clinical infectious diseases to clinical microbiology, epidemiology, immunology, and environmental microbiology to basic researchers using S. epidermidis as a tool.
Features: Who would have thought there would be enough material to publish an entire book devoted to S. epidermidis? The first chapter is an excellent, concise review of clinical characteristics of human infections. Subsequent chapters transition from organism identification (molecular methods, PFGE, multilocus sequence typing) to isolation of substances of interest (modulins, RNA, chromosomal DNA), genetic manipulation, biofilm production, and, finally, animal models of S. epidermidis infection. True to the spirit of Springer Protocols, many chapters come fully equipped with detailed experimental protocols ready for you to try in your laboratory.
Assessment: If you have any interest in any aspect of Staphylococcus epidermidis, you will want to read and likely own this book.
