Summary "Fundamental Bacterial Genetics presents a concise introduction to microbial genetics. The text focuses on one bacterial species, Escherichia coli, but draws examples from other microbial systems at appropriate points to support the fundamental concepts of molecular genetics. A solid balance of concepts, techniques, and applications makes this book an accessible, essential introduction to the theory and practice of microbial genetics."--Jacket
