Contents Cover; Half-title; Series-title; Title; Copyright; Contents; Contributors; Preface; CHAPTER 1 Physiological and molecular aspects of growth, non-growth, culturability and viability in bacteria; CHAPTER 2 Survival of environmental and host-associated stress; CHAPTER 3 Surviving the immune response: an immunologist's perspective; CHAPTER 4 Quantitative and qualitative changes in bacterial activity controlled by interbacterial signalling; CHAPTER 5 Mechanisms of stationary-phase mutagenesis in bacteria and their relevance to antibiotic resistance; CHAPTER 6 Biofilms, dormancy and resistance
Summary Many bacteria survive infection of their host in a low growth state, including the classic persistent infectious bacteria, tuberculosis. This book will be of interest to microbiologists, medical microbiologists and infectious disease clinicians who are interested in learning more about the fundamental science of bacterial dormancy in relation to disease
