This highly anticipated update of the acclaimed textbook draws on the latest research to give students the knowledge and tools to explore the mechanisms by which bacterial pathogens cause infections in humans and animals. Written in an approachable and engaging style, the book uses illustrative examples and thought-provoking exercises to inspire students with the potential excitement and fun of scientific discovery. Completely revised and updated, and for the first time in stunning full-color, Bacterial Pathogenesis: A Molecular Approach, Fourth Edition, builds on the core principles and foundations of its predecessors while expanding into new concepts, key findings, and cutting-edge research, including new developments in the areas of the microbiome and CRISPR as well as the growing challenges of antimicrobial resistance.

All-new detailed illustrations help students clearly understand important concepts and mechanisms of the complex interplay between bacterial pathogens and their hosts. Study questions at the end of each chapter challenge students to delve more deeply into the topics covered, and hone their skills in reading, interpreting, and analyzing data, as well as devising their own experiments. A detailed glossary defines and expands on key terms highlighted throughout the book. Written for advanced undergraduate, graduate, and professional students in microbiology, bacteriology, and pathogenesis, this text is a must-have for anyone looking for a greater understanding of virulence mechanisms across the breadth of bacterial pathogens.

“This much-appreciated update, plus new full-color illustrations, make this classic textbook a valuable resource for both students and teachers of bacterial pathogenesis. Its potential use in more than one course only adds to its appeal. ”

—Rachel Fernandez, PhD, Professor, Microbiology & Immunology, University of British Columbia, Canada

“A tremendous body of knowledge on bacterial pathogenesis, including host factors.”

—Sungweon Ryoo, PhD, Director, Clinical Research Centre, Masan National Tuberculosis Hospital, Republic of Korea
