Fungi, Bacteria And Viruses (eBook)
Sobre o livro
This book blends information on classical fundamental aspects with recent development in fungal, bacterial, and, viral systematics. The textbook of fungi presents information on the morphology, life cycle and their economic uses in human life. Special attempt has been made on the biological activities of the microbial products. They produce several types of drugs including antibiotics, drugs that reduce high blood pressure. Because viruses, bacteria, and fungi cause many well-known diseases, it is common to confuse them, but they are as different as a mouse and an elephant. A look at the size, structure, reproduction, hosts, and diseases caused by each will shed some light on the important differences between these germs. As bacterial antibiotic resistance continues to exhaust our supply of effective antibiotics, a global public health disaster appears likely. Poor financial investment in antibiotic research has exacerbated the situation. A call to arms raised by several prestigious scientific organisations a few years ago rallied the scientific community, and not the scope of antibacterial research has broadened considerably. These are very tiny, simple organisms. In fact, they are so tiny that they can only be seen with a special, very powerful microscope called an "e;electron microscope,"e; and they are so simple that they are technically not even considered "e;alive."e; The book describes fungi, bacteria and viruses in light of recent information.
