Summary "Cellular Microbiology introduces the key concepts of prokaryotic and eukaryotic cell biology, cell signalling mechanisms and current molecular biological techniques used in cellular microbiology before describing how bacteria interact with host eukaryotic cells during infections and health, and explaining the interactions with the immune system which enable an individual to recover from infections."--BOOK JACKET. "This book will be invaluable to advanced undergraduate and postgraduate students studying microbiology, virology, pathology, pharmacology, and cell biology. It will also be useful for those researchers interested in bacterial infection."--BOOK JACKET
