About the Authors
  • Microbes have co-evolved over time with other organisms to the extent that some are so acquainted with host cell biology that they subvert key cellular processes with unrivalled precision. This volume reviews this exciting new discipline, reflecting the recent explosion of knowledge as well as broader insights into fundamental cellular processes. C. David O'Connor and David Smith cover the salient aspects by using a range of model systems.

    • Presents the latest information in this exciting, fast-moving area of study
    • Provides wider insights into fundamental underlying cellular processes
    • Brings together contributions by many of the leading experts in the field for the first time
