MORE ABOUT THIS BOOK

Main description:

While many volumes have been written about various aspects of antimicrobial resistance, this book is a comprehensive reference work. All manifestations of resistance are addressed: viral; bacterial, parasitical and fungal are given dedicated sections. The underlining molecular mechanisms, which depend not only on the microbe but on the specific drug (target), are highly diverse. This work discusses and compares the biological, biochemical and structural aspects of resistance and its evolution.


Feature:

A comprehensive study of antimicrobial resistance

Fills a void, as there is no encyclopedic collection on the topic

Topic is very timely, as instances of antimicrobial resistance increase and once-controllable diseases spread

MEET THE AUTHOR

Dr. Matthias Gotte is a respected name in the area of infectious diseases. He is co-editing another book for Springer, Human Immunodeficiency Virus Reverse Transcriptase, along with Dr. Stuart Le Grice of the NIH. This will be included in our series, Topics in HIV/AIDS Research. McGill University has emerged as a major center of infectious disease research and the team of Co-Editors Dr. Gotte has assembled from his pool of colleagues will certainly prove to be equal to the task of compiling a book of such scope and importance.
