Newly revised to accompany Microbiology: An Introduction , Eighth Edition by Tortora, Funke, and Case, this lab manual includes 57 experiments that demonstrate the broad spectrum of microbiology. Intended as a manual of basic microbiological techniques, this popular lab manual features applications for undergraduate students in diverse areas, including the biological sciences, the allied health sciences, agriculture, environmental science, nutrition, pharmacy, and various pre-professional programs. Experiments have been refined in this new edition to encourage students to develop critical-thinking skills as well as learn basic facts and technical skills. Material with direct application to clinical and commercial labs is included wherever possible, and increased emphasis is placed on lab safety.
