The Practical Handbook of Microbiology presents basic knowledge about working with microorganisms in a clear and concise form. It also provides in-depth information on important aspects of the field—from classical microbiology to genomics—in one easily accessible volume. This new edition retains the easy-to-use format of previous editions, with a logical presentation of frequently used reference data that enables readers to rapidly locate the information needed. New chapters have been included in this edition, including a noteworthy one on the business aspects of microbiology that has been added to address the needs of investors looking to understand the science behind companies that they are contemplating funding and scientists that are interested in commercializing their research. In addition, chapters have been added on new microorganism-based disease and pathogenic mechanisms. All chapters from the previous edition have been revised and updated. Major topics covered include almost all studied bacteria, and introductions to fungi, parasites, and viruses, as well as methods of culture collection, enumeration, and preservation of microorganisms, diagnostic medical microbiology, mechanisms of antimicrobial agents, and antibiotics and antifungal agents. Although this book will be of use to anyone interested in the subject matter, it will be of particular benefit to specialized microbiologists as well as those who simply use microbiology as an adjunct to their own discipline, in finding relevant information quickly and easily.

Throughout the world, milk and milk products are indispensable components of the food chain. Not only do individual consumers use liquid milk for beverages and cooking, but food manufacturers use vast quantities of milk powder, concentrated milks, butter, and cream as raw materials for further processing. Effective quality assurance in the dairy industry is needed now more than ever. This completely revised and expanded Third Edition of Dairy Microbiology Handbook, comprising both Volume I: Microbiology of Milk and Volume II: Microbiology of Milk Products, updates the discipline’s authoritative text with the latest safety research, guidelines, and information. Pathogens have become a major issue in dairy manufacturing. Escheria coli is a concern, and milk-borne strains of Mycobacterium avium sub-sp. paratuberculosis have been identified as a possible cause of Crohn’s disease. Even little-known parasites like Cryptosporidium have caused disease outbreaks. Consequently, a hazard analysis of selected control/critical points (HACCP) in any manufacturing process has become essential to prevent the contamination of food. This volume also: -Discusses new diagnostic techniques that allow a pathogen to be detected in a retail sample in a matter of hours rather than days -Provides thorough coverage of dairy microbiology principles as well as practical applications -Includes the latest developments in dairy starter cultures and genetic engineering techniques -Offers completely updated standards for Good Manufacturing Practice Quality control and product development managers, microbiologists, dairy scientists, engineers, and graduate students will find the Third Edition of Dairy Microbiology Handbook to be a vital resource.
