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.
Author(s): Lansing M Prescott, Donald A
Klein and John P Harley
This note covers the
following topics: Chemical Principles, Cell Structures, Microbial Growth,
Genetics, Classification of Microorganisms, Bacteria, Fungi, Algae, Protozoa,
and Multicellular Parasites, Viruses, Principles of Disease and Epidemiology,
Microbial Pathogenesis, Nonspecific Host Defenses, Immune System Disorders,
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.
