9780071316736: Foundations in Microbiology

Talaro/Chess: Foundations in Microbiology is an allied health microbiology text for non-science majors with a taxonomic approach to the disease chapters. It offers an engaging and accessible writing style through the use of tools such as case studies and analogies to thoroughly explain difficult microbiology concepts. We are so excited to offer a robust learning program with student-focused learning activities, allowing the student to manage their learning while you easily manage their assessment. Detailed reports show how your assignments measure various learning objectives from the book (or input your own!), levels of Bloom’s Taxonomy or other categories, and how your students are doing. The Talaro Learning program will save you time while improving your students success in this course.

From the Publisher:

Greater accuracy than ever before! The Fourth Edition has been extensively reviewed by numerous expert reviewers.
A more modern treatment of basic chemistry in Chapter 2. There are clearer descriptions of the Major Elements of Life and better explanations of bonds and the chemical basis of the genetic code. New illustrations improve student understanding of the 'Atoms to Cells' focus of this chapter.
Over 1/3 of the art has been either carefully revised or is brand new, giving greater clarity than ever before. The text has always had superb correlation between textual material, artwork, and photos due to Kathleen Talaro's expertise as a scientific illustrator and photographer.
A completely new testbank has been written by coauthor Art Talaro. With approximately 100 questions per chapter, there is a greater variety and more challenging questions available.
Available with a loaded McGraw-Hill multimedia package: Microbes in Motion III, HyperClinic II, Electronic e-Text, and an Online Learning Center.
Excellent learning aids such as bulleted Chapter Overview sections, updated Chapter Capsules, footnoted word origins, and pronunciation guides help students better comprehend difficult material.You can customize this book to meet your exact needs and mix and match with other items on Primis Online allowing you maximum choice and flexibility. You can also choose between two delivery formats: custom printed books (in black and white) or custom eBooks (in color).
Talaro's text takes a taxonomic (organism) approach to the disease coverage(Ch. 18-25). Students are introduced to each pathogen by a description of the class it belongs to, the diseases (and characteristic symptoms) it causes, and the diagnosis and treatment of those diseases.
Unique "mini chapter" -Introduction to Medical Microbiology. Located between Chapters 17 and 18, this "mini-chapter" is an introduction to the clinical material in the text. It gives an overview of lab techniques, safety procedures, and other items of interest to a clinical microbiology student.
A Basic Principles version (Chapters 1-17 of this text) is also available.
BioCourse.Com. The number one source for your biology course. BioCourse.Com is an electronic meeting place for students and instructors. It provides a comprehensive set of resources in one place that is up-to-date and easy-to-navigate. You'll find a Faculty Club, Student Center, Briefing Room, BioLabs, Content Warehouse, and R&D Center.
Four new boxed essays have been added to the Fourth Edition:
Historical Highlights give students glimpses of microbiology history.
Microbits offer students interesting microbiology facts.
Spotlight on Microbiology boxes contain up-to-date news from the microbiology world.
Medical Microbiology boxes showcase clinical and health-related applications.
