The authors have succeeded remarkably in their aim to relate what is new and significant in microbiology with its roots. From roots in microbiology, the independent disciplines of immunology, molecular genetics, and virology now flourish. An essential background in these subjects as well as for an understanding of human infections is provided. There are five major sections: bacterial physiology, bacterial and molecular genetics, immunology, bacterial and mycotic infections, and virology. These subjects are presented in considerable depth and discussion includes the recent development of plasmids, gene manipulation, the diversity of V genes, and the basis for hybridoma technology.
