Brock Biology of Microorganisms is the leading majors microbiology text on the market. It sets the standard for impeccable scholarship, accuracy, and strong coverage of ecology, evolution, and metabolism. The 15th edition seamlessly integrates the most current science, paying particular attention to molecular biology and the genomic revolution. It introduces a flexible, more streamlined organisation with a consistent level of detail and comprehensive art program.
Features
  • More Annotated Figures clearly illustrate and explain all key metabolic pathways and molecular processes.
  • Evolution as a Framework uses evolution as an overarching theme to unite microbiological concepts and provide a framework upon which students can build their knowledge.
  • Updated 21st Century Microbiology improves teaching into global climate change, biofuels, and microbial fuel cells.
  • Enhanced Instructional Art Program enhances learning with three-dimensional renditions and bright, attractive colors. 
  • Expanded Molecular Microbiology and Immunology chapters deepen discussion of eukaryotic and archaeal genetics and reflects the relatedness of genetic information flow. A streamlined discussion of immunity with enhanced detail between innate and adaptive linkages helps students grasp the complexity and specificity of immune responses.
  • Reorganised end-of-chapter content better assists student review and assessment. 
  • Revised Microbiology Now chapter showcases current microbiology research, contextualises chapter content, and adds relevancy with visual content. 
  • Assignable Explore the Microbial World features includes majors-microbiology level data interpretation exercises.
