Textbook of Microbiology provides a structured approach to learning by covering all the important topics in a simple, uniform and systematic format. The book is written in a manner suited to the undergraduate and postgraduate of Microbiology / Industrial Microbiology courses. The language and diagrams are particularly easy to understand and reproduce while answering essay type questions.
Sections I of the book covers essentials of Microbiology including history, scope and milestones in the development of microbiology. This is followed by detailed accounts of characteristics and classification of microorganisms including bacteria, virus, fungi and actinomycetes. Individual chapters on microscopy, isolation and maintenance of microorganisms, microbial growth provide a detailed account of these techniques and their use in microbiology.
Section II of the book covers biochemistry, microbial genetics and some instrumentation including chapters on carbohydrates, proteins, lipids, nucleic acids, gene regulation, translation and transcription along with detailed accounts of spectrophotometry, pH meter and fermenters.
