About the Authors
  • An understanding of the relationship between a pathogen and its host is essential for the development of effective disease control measures. This volume focuses on interactions at the molecular level, specifically between the proteins of the infectious agent and the host that has been invaded. Both viral and bacterial systems are considered, with specific examples illustrating the rapid advances being made in defining the molecular mechanisms underlying infection.

    • Unique in focussing on the protein-protein interactions taking place between host and pathogen
    • Considers a broad range of interactions, taking examples from both bacteria and viruses
    • Another title in the well-respected and authoritative SGM Symposium Series

    Reviews & endorsements

    "The book is written in a clear style with numerous citations and illustrations...the numerous contributing authors are well regarded within their respective fields and enhance the overall value of the text." Doody's Health Sciences Book Review Journal

    "...the volume illustrates the rapid advances being made in defining the molecular mechanisms in microbial pathogenesis. It will be useful to graduate students and researchers in the field of host-pathogen interactions and is highly recommended for purchase by medical libraries as a reference source." Canadian Society of Microbiologists Newsletter
