Writing in the journal Microbiology Today
(Society for General Microbiology, UK), Madeline Stone & Kathy Bamford from the Imperial College London, UK, review a new book on Staphylococcus
published by Caister Academic Press
"This is an incredibly useful book for anyone with in interest in staphylococci. It provides a broad and in-depth synopsis of up-to-date staphylococcal research. This book is very well suited to its target audiences, researchers who are relatively new to the field and also as a suitable reference for those with greater experience. The first five chapters are particularly informative, providing an excellent overview of the staphylococcal sequencing projects, population structure and evolution of S. aureus
, as well as analysis of the methods used ... The chapter on 'Global regulators of Staphylococcus aureus virulence genes' is excellent ... this chapter provides a thorough review of the literature ... We hope that this book will be regularly reviewed and updated in line with this rapidly expanding field."
