Summary

Written with the non-major/allied health student in mind, Foundations in Microbiologyoffers an engaging and accessible writing style through the use of tools such as case studies and analogies to thoroughly explain difficult microbiology concepts. A taxonomic approach is used for the study of pathogens. Benson's Microbiological Applicationshas been the gold standard of microbiology laboratory manuals for over 30 years. The 77 self-contained, clearly-illustrated exercises, and four-color format makes Microbiological Applications: Laboratory Manual in General Microbiology, the ideal lab manual.
