About these proceedings


Molecular microbiology is a rapidly expanding area of contemporary science: the application of molecular biology has opened up the microbial world in many remarkable ways. The attraction of microbes is that they are self-contained and that they offer complete solutions to understanding the phenomenon of life.
This book provides a concise introduction to current research in the field. Four major areas are introduced and explained:
- Bacterial Biochemistry
- Bacterial Genomes
- Gene Expression
- Microbial Cell Biology


Quorum sensing bacteria biochemistry biology cell cell biology gene gene expression genetics microbiology molecular biology molecular genetics protein protein synthesis transcription
