About this item

Microbe, Second Edition brings the excitement, breadth and power of the modern microbial sciences to the next generation of students and scientists in a fun and engaging way.How is this book different from others on the same topic?Rather than serve as a comprehensive reference book, Microbe uses a lively narrative to bring to life key concepts and skills identified in the 2012 Curriculum Guidelines by the ASM Education Board. To illustrate the impact of key microbiology concepts on real world scenarios, each chapter begins with a case study, ranging from sauerkraut fermentation to the cholera outbreak in Haiti. Throughout the book, questions are posed to introduce the next key concept and to prompt students to engage in their learning. To deepen students’ understanding of both the principles and practice of science, each chapter includes multiple active learning exercises for individuals or groups, as well as vetted visual, audio and written resources for students and faculty alike. The new Second Edition includes:• Concepts of evolutionary biology are woven throughout the text.• An entirely new section teaches principles of infectious diseases (6 chapters total)• Curriculum Guidelines are used to frame the key concepts taught in each chapter• Active learning exercises support instructors who “flip” their classroom.• Every chapter begins with a case study that brings the microbiology to life and ends by tying key concepts back to the case study. • Each section begins with the over-arching question that will be explored.• Key concepts are illustrated by a greatly expanded set of figures, animations, graphs, and tables.• Fundamentals of bacteriology, mycology, virology; environmental microbiology; microbial pathogenesisAudience: Microbiology course for majors and pre-health professionals, or for scientists whose fields interface with the microbial sciences (eg, engineers, computational biologists, chemists)
