  • Electron Microscopy in Microbiologyby Frank Mayer

    Elsevier Science 1988; US$ 72.95

    This volume of this acclaimed series deals with electron microscopic techniques applied for the elucidation of microbial structures and structure-function relationships at cellular, sub-cellular, and macromolecular levels. Many of the recent findings on ultrastructural features of microorganisms have been obtained with newly developed methods, though... more...

  • Endosymbionts in Parameciumby

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2009; US$ 279.00

    Endosymbiosis is a primary force in eukaryotic cell evolution. In order to understand the molecular mechanisms involved in this mutualistic relationship, experiments to reproduce endosymbiosis are indispensable. The ciliate "Paramecium" is an ideal host for performing such studies. Topics presented in this volume are: the origins of algal... more...

  • Who Are We? Microbes the Puppet Masters!by Yuan Kun Lee

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2008; US$ 35.00

    Our genome is littered with scraps of DNA, termed “junk” DNAs, that serve no apparent purpose. Junk DNAs make up as much as 98.5% of our genome. Scientists believe that some junk DNAs came into existence millions of years ago, when viruses inserted their DNA into that of the human host. There is emerging evidence that suggests that these... more...

  • Fungiby Ramesh Maheshwari

    CRC Press 2011; US$ 132.95

    Fungi are now at the forefront of research on mechanisms in gene silencing, biological rhythm, mating processes, biogenesis of intracellular organelles, adaptations to hostile habitats, structure of natural populations, and speciation. Because of their small genomes, fungi are being used in "systems biology" to understand the connections between genes,... more...

  • Beneficial Microorganisms in Multicellular Life Formsby Eugene Rosenberg; Uri Gophna

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2011; US$ 209.00

    This book brings together diverse biologists to discuss microbial interactions with multicellular life forms including insects, corals, plants, and mammals, including humans. It explores the role of microorganisms in the health or disease of their hosts. more...

  • Microcosmby Carl Zimmer

    Random House 2012; US$ 31.98

    In 1946, a twenty-year-old medical school student called Joshua Lederberg decided to find out whether microbes make love. Lederberg was motivated not by a displaced libido, but by scientific ambition. At the age of seven, he had declared that he hoped to become 'like Einstein' and to 'discover a few things in science.' The 'few things' Lederberg... more...
