ENGAGING AND ACCESSIBLE CONTENT FOR MOTIVATING STUDENTS TO LEARN THE FUNDAMENTALS OF MODERN MICROBIOLOGY

Two themes run throughout the book—the gut microbiome and new marine microbiology—and connect engaging examples to important concepts in two key areas of the field (medical and ecological microbiology). Abundant eye-catching illustrations and helpful pedagogy, including Thought Questions and summary lists, help students master the core concepts in the text.

COMPREHENSIVE COVERAGE OF THE RAPIDLY EVOLVING FIELD OF MICROBIOLOGY

New coauthor Erik Zinser brings his experience as an active teacher and researcher to update and restructure coverage of microbial genetics and genomics. Zinser truly captures how these central topics are being studied by microbiologists today. All new chapter opening interviews and updated Special Topics put cutting-edge research and the scientists doing it front and centre, so students learn the most up-to-date science, while also engaging with the process of science.

DIGITAL ASSESSMENT AND NEW ACTIVE LEARNING RESOURCES THAT PROMOTE LEARNING AND RETENTION

Smartwork5, the Interactive Instructors Guide active learning resources and the Squarecap classroom response content work with the textbook to address the challenges instructors and students face: an overwhelming amount of information and students’ inexperience with the science.
