Summary:
"The medical miracle of antibiotics is being eroded by the emergence and spread of bacterial drug resistance. This is compounded by the fact that bacterial bio-films are believed to be a common cause of persistent infections, where growing in a biofilm, bacteria are protected from the host's immune response and antibiotics. This book describes the molecular mechanisms of bacterial cell-to-cell communication (quorum  Read more...
