of this note is to provide an introduction to the study of microorganisms.
Topics covered includes: Prokaryotic Cell Structure and Function, Eukaryotic
Cell Structure and Function, Virus Structure and Function, Brown Symposium,
Metabolism: Generation of energy, Use of energy, Nucleic acids and Proteins,
Antibiotics, Microbial Genetics.
lecture note covers introductory microbiology from a systems perspective,
considering microbial diversity, population dynamics, and genomics. Emphasis is
placed on the delicate balance between microbes and humans, and the changes that
result in the emergence of infectious diseases and antimicrobial resistance.

This book begins with a review of the immune system, focusing on
the body's response to invading microorganisms. Bacteria are then covered, first
with a series of chapters presenting the general concepts of bacterial
microbiology and then with chapters detailing the major bacterial pathogenes of
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.
