    Salient Features

    Focus on today's learners

    NEW! Streamlined organization better suits how instructors structure their courses, organizing course topics by 6 units consisting of 32 chapters. The Fourteenth Edition effectively and efficiently introduces students to the foundation and science of microbiology in a modern, appropriate organization.
    NEW! Molecular microbiology and genomics are introduced early in the text and discussed throughout multiple chapters for a more integrated, comprehensive introduction to the field.
    NEW! MicrobiologyNow chapter openers focus on current research problems and discoveries contextualizing chapter content and adding interest with content
    REVISED! A renamed "Explore the Microbial World" box feature (formerly "Microbial Sidebar") places greater emphasis on engaging research and discoveries from multiple microbiology disciplines.
     NEW! Updates have been made to all chapters, tables, boxes, and statistics with the latest data available.
    The Big Ideas at the end of each chapter review the core principles in the chapter by summarizing each section in 2-3 sentences.
    MiniQuizzes concluding each section contain 3-4 questions that give students an opportunity to stop and think about the core principles of each section.    
    Extensive and accurate coverage of microbiology make this text a trusted name and valuable reference.
