Microbiology promotes a clear understanding of this rapidly advancing field in several distinctive ways. First, an emphasis on current research, genomics, and molecular genetics enables students to learn how microbiologists think. Second, a readable text paired with a stunning and consistently executed art program and accompanied by twenty-two high-quality animations based on art in the text, help students visualise key processes and showcase the latest structural discoveries. Additional helpful pedagogical features in every chapter, such as Thought Questions, aid student understanding and stimulate inquiry.
