Summary Principles of Bacterial Pathogenesis presents a molecular perspective on a select group of bacterial pathogens by having the leaders of the field present their perspective in a clear and authoritative manner. Each chapter contains a comprehensive review devoted to a single pathogen. Several chapters include work from authors outside the pathogenesis field, providing general perspectives on the evolution, regulation, and secretion of virulence and determinants. Key Features * Explains the basic principles of bacterial pathogenesis * Covers diverse aspects integrating regulation, cellular microbiology and evolution of microbial disease of humans * Discusses current strategies for the identification of virulence determinants and the methods used by microbes to deliver virulence factors * Presents authoritative treatises of the major disease microorganisms
