Microbiology text tells stories, offers online resources

A new general microbiology textbook aimed at undergraduate students comes with not one, but two online resources. Written by eminent scientists with practical teaching, textbook writing and research experience, Microbe, will engage students in the learning process with its clear, reader-friendly style and a unique perspective of the field.

"Our working plan has been to emphasize concepts, not facts, although facts have a tendency to creep in," says Moselio Schaechter of San Diego State University who co-authored the text with John Ingraham of the University of California, Davis, and Federick Neidhardt of the University of Michigan. "We like to tell stories about the way microbes are put together, what they must do to grow and survive and how they interact with all other living things."

Microbe is paradigm-driven rather than fact-driven. Key concepts are illustrated by inspiring examples that convey the excitement of the field. The text is designed not as a compendium of facts, but rather a textbook in the traditional sense: a book that can be used for studying rather than for looking up factual information.

"Not wanting to overload this book with information, we turn you to the wealth of material available on the internet," says Schaechter.

Purchase of the Microbe textbook grants instructors and students access to two Web resources. The Microbe website is designed to amplify material covered in the book by providing quick links to additional information and animation and video clips. The organization of the supplementary material corresponds to the chapters in the book, and links are clearly labeled by number and title. Sidebars throughout the text guide readers to the designated links.

Another study aid is the BrainX E-Learning System study guide. Purchase of Microbe includes access to this powerful online study guide that enhances learning and allows students to make more productive use of their study time. Microbe
