With so many major advances over the past two decades coming through the application of molecular biology and nanotechnology, it is essential that dental research, education, and practice keep pace with the rapid progress of science. In Oral Biology: Molecular Techniques and Applications, expert researchers in the field have provided a selection of in depth methods and techniques optimized for particular applications, which can be readily adapted to... more...

Rhinoviruses: Methods and Protocols highlights the numerous molecular, cellular and in vivo tools now available to conduct human rhinovirus (HRV) research in an effort to increase understanding of the clinical disease caused by HRVs as well as the functions of its individual proteins and its replication. Human rhinoviruses are the major cause of common colds as well as being more recently recognized as the major viral cause of asthma... more...

This book focuses on probiotics with antiviral activities. The "antiviral probiotic" is a new concept in medical sciences. Recently, studies have shown that antiviral probiotics can fight or prevent viral infections in many ways. The immunomodulation of mucosal immunity, production of antiviral compounds, virus trapping and the use thereof as vaccination vectors are the principal modes of action of antiviral probiotics. The author dedicates an entire... more...

The landmark clinical guide to the role microorganisms play in human health and illnesses -- extensively revised and updated A Doody's Core Title! Linking fundamental microbiology concepts with the diagnosis and treatment of clinical infections, this one-of-a-kind, portable text delivers an essential overview of the organisms and agents involved in clinical microbiology. In addition to brief descriptions of the organisms, you'll... more...

To adequately describe complex spatio-temporal processes that occur in multi-cellular organisms, a class of models is required that simultaneously takes into account differences between individual cells as well as their ability to communicate and interact with one another and their environment. Single-cell-based models form a framework that allows for the explicit incorporation of different properties of individual cells, but at the... more...

This book primarily focuses on microbial colonization, its role in plant growth and nutrient cycling, mycorrhizae, and providing an overview of phytospheric microorganisms in sustainable crop systems. Despite the advances made in the study of plant-microbe synergism, the relation between microbes and plant health in the context of food security, soil nutrient management, human and plant health is still largely unexplored. Addressing... more...

This book expands on the previous volumes with new chapters focusing on functional characterization of phage and their proteins, and on the development of phage therapy by outlining novel models. The chapters in this book cover molecular topics such as PhageFISH for monitoring phage infections at single cell level; the analysis of phage-host protein-protein interactions using Strep-tagĀ® II purifications; and also application driven... more...
