This book provides an
introduction to the concepts of microbial pathogenesis with emphasis on the
mechanisms employed by pathogenic microorganisms in establishing infection in
the host, and the responses of the host to infection.
This book introduces the field of microbiology and
discusses the importance of microorganisms not only as causative agents of
disease but also as important contributors to food production, antibiotic
manufacture, vaccine development, and environmental management.
