The author team of Prescott's Microbiology continues the tradition of past editions by providing a balanced, comprehensive introduction to all major areas of microbiology. This balance makes Microbiology appropriate for microbiology majors and mixed majors courses. The authors have introduced a number of pedagogical elements designed to facilitate student learning. They also remain focused on readability, artwork, and the integration of several key themes (including evolution, ecology and diversity) throughout the text, making an already superior text even better.
This edition of 'Microbiology' provides a balanced, comprehensive introduction to all major areas of microbiology. The text is appropriate for students preparing for careers in medicine, dentistry, nursing and allied health, as well as research, teaching and industry.
The Eighth Edition continues to present material in short chapters organized thematically into nine separate sections. Shorter chapters are less daunting and more "digestible" for most students. Furthermore, they offer the professor a greater degree of flexibility so that the order in which chapters are covered can be tailored to meet the needs of an individual class.
Prescott, Harley and Klein's 6th edition provides a balanced, comprehensive introduction to all major areas of microbiology.

An overview of protein structure and function follows,
"Microbiology covers the scope and sequence requirements for a single-semester microbiology course for non-majors. The book presents the core concepts of microbiology with a focus on applications for careers in allied health. The pedagogical features of the text make the material interesting and accessible while maintaining the career-application focus and scientific rigor inherent in the subject matter. Microbiology's art program enhances students' understanding of concepts through clear and effective illustrations, diagrams, and photographs.
