About the Authors
  • Organisms replicate only when conditions are beneficial and, when not replicating, concentrate on surviving environmental stresses in a low growth state. This book addresses the basic science of microbial dormancy and low growth states in the context of human medicine. The chapters describe how bacteria can cause such diseases as stomach ulcers, bladder infections, and tuberculosis. The volume will be of interest to graduate students and researchers in medical microbiology, immunology and infectious disease medicine.

    • Written by experts in the field, providing an overview of bacterial dormancy in the context of medicine
    • Covers the basic science, as well as key topics such as antibiotic resistance
    • Discusses dormancy in eukaryotes (yeast and plants), as well the classic persistent bacteria, tuberculosis and the bacteria which cause gastric ulcers
