Microbial Cell Envelopes: Interactions and Biofilms available in Hardcover
- Pub. Date:
- Wiley, John & Sons, Incorporated
This volume presents a series of coordinated chapters examining the surface properties and interactions of planktonic and biofilm microbial cells. The cell envelope determines the interactions between cells and their environment and is vitally important for survival. Phenomena related to it play a crucial role in the impact of microbes on a variety of disciplines including medicine, immunology, biotechnology, materials technology and process engineering.
• This book has also been published as a supplement to the Journal of Applied Bacteriology.
