Next edition of textbook ushers cellular microbiology out of infancy

WASHINGTON, DC November 30, 2004 -- ASM Press announces the latest edition of its textbook Cellular Microbiology. Geared towards scientists and graduate students, the 2nd edition of this publication will serve as an invaluable reference for understanding this relatively new field of scientific research.

Coined in 1996, the term "cellular microbiology" identifies an emerging discipline that integrates the fields of cell biology and microbiology, highlighting the interaction between microbes and host cells. The advent of genomics, proteomics and postgenomics has resulted in more widespread understanding of the field of cellular microbiology among scientists. Cellular Microbiology, 2nd Edition, considers genomic information and advances in technology in an updated examination of this burgeoning area of research.

"As in the first edition, the chapters in this book contain information about fundamental cell biology and fundamental microbiology, as well as articles that show the marriage of the two cellular microbiology," says Stanley Falkow of Stanford University in the book's foreword. "However, in this edition, the field has passed from its infancy to, well, at least puberty, with all of its attendant vigor, uncertainty and growing pains."

The second edition of this textbook offers five new chapters that comprehensively cover bacterial human pathogen genomes; structure and dynamics of the host cell membrane; study of prokaryotic biology using genome-wide approaches; cell biology of virus infection; and use of simple nonvertebrate hosts to model mammalian pathogenesis. All chapters are revised and organized like the first edition to provide fundamental details of each discipline along with the cellular microbiology aspects.
