An understanding of the molecular basis of antibacterial action is an essential component of university courses in the pharmaceutical, biomedical and food sciences. Such an understanding is equally valuable to industrial pharmacists and to research scientists designing new antibacterial agents. This title, substantially rewritten for this edition, incorporates current information on new antibiotics, updates on older drugs and biocides, and gives expanded coverage of bacteria such as mycobacteria, enterocoli, methicillin resistant staphylococci and pneumococci that pose an increasing therapeutic problem. This work is intended for undergraduate and postgraduate students of microbiology and biochemistry, microbial genetics, applied microbiology, biotechnology, molecular biology, pharmacy, food science, veterinary science and dentistry.
