Microbiology: An Evolving Science promotes a clear understanding of this rapidly advancing field in two distinctive ways.
First, an emphasis on current research, genomics, and molecular genetics enables students to learn how microbiologists think as they master the discipline's foundational topics. Second, a stunning and consistently executed art program helps students visualize key microbiological processes and structures.
