Beschreibung

The Human Microbiota offers a comprehensive review of all human-associated microbial niches in a single volume, focusing on what modern tools in molecular microbiology are revealing about human microbiota, and how specific microbial communities can be associated with either beneficial effects or diseases. An excellent resource for microbiologists, physicians, infectious disease specialists, and others in the field, the book describes the latest research findings and evaluates the most innovative research approaches and technologies. Perspectives from pioneers in human microbial ecology are provided throughout.

Autorentext
David Fredricks is an expert in infectious diseases and the human indigenous microbiota, with a research focus on the bacterial biota of the human vagina and how changes in the composition of vaginal microbes lead to the syndrome bacterial vaginosis. He has authored more than 32 peer reviewed journal articles, 7 book chapters, and 9 editorials or invited reviews. He has been a peer reviewer for more than a dozen major medical and infectious diseases journals, and has served on several NIH study sections.
