Focusing on combating bacterial pathogens by understanding their strategies of defense, this book highlights the antibiotic resistance in pathogens that poses the greatest threat to human health. Each chapter begins with a summary of concepts, so those not actively working in the field gain an overall picture of what follows. Containing nearly 2000 references for additional research, the book presents the molecular basis, methods of detection and identification, and concepts for reducing the development and spread of resistant bacterial strains.
