About this book


Pseudomonas volume 5 is intended to collect new information on the genomics of saprophytic soil Pseudomonas, as well as functions related to genomic islands. Pseudomonas are ubiquitous inhabitants and this volume explores life styles in different settings and sheds further insights on the wide metabolic potential of this microbe for the removal of pollutants and production of added-value products. This volume also explores how Pseudomonas responds and reacts to environmental signals, including detection of cell density.

This fifth volume covers the following topics:

- Genomics
- Physiology and metabolism
- Databases
- Gene regulation
- Pathogenesis
- Catabolism and biotransformations.

Pseudomonas volume 5 will be of use to researchers working on these bacteria, particularly those studying virulence, genomics, physiology, biotechnology, biotransformations, etc. Advanced students in biology, medicine and agronomy will also find this volume a valuable reference during their studies.
