Summary

"Making Connections" Microbiology: A Systems Approachis a non-majors/allied health microbiology textbook that has become known for its unique organization, engaging writing style, and instructional art program. Cowan's "building blocks" approach establishes the big picture first and then gradually layers concepts onto this foundation. This logical structure helps students acquire knowledge while connecting important concepts. Laboratory Applications in Microbiology: A Case Study Approachuses real-life case studies as the basis for exercises in the laboratory. This is the only microbiology lab manual focusing on this means of instruction, an approach particularly applicable to the microbiology laboratory. The author has carefully organized the exercises so that students develop a solid intellectual base beginning with a particular technique, moving through the case study, and finally applying new knowledge to unique situations beyond the case study.
