  • Hello Everyone! A shout out to my ex-colleague Jewel and old friend Ed Rodham.
  • ASM puts on five annual and two major conferences a year. The ASM Meeting and ICAAC ( Interscience Conf. on Antimicrobial Agents and Chemotherapy ) ASM membes are great book buyers!
  • $79.95 Intended for; undergrad courses in microbiology, microbial ecology, molecular evolution of microbes & microbial genomics. This is based on an actual course taught at UCLA. Both authors @ UCLA
  • $119.95 As they say, you don’t get to be a 4 th edition if you’re not a good book. Adaptable to different upper-level undergrad & grad courses. Glick & Pasternak @ U of Waterloo, Patten @ U of New Brunswick Note: It's in Waterloo, home of RIM and some day an NHL team? Kitchener-Waterloo are 2 cities so close together you have to live there to know which is which. U of Waterloo likes to tell people that Microsoft hires more grads from there than any other school.Not many of them are microbiology students I imagine but it is very much an up and coming U.
  • $149.95 Based on the author’s experiences teaching Virology for the past 35 years! Single authored text, nice consistency, reviewed very well. Norkin @ Umass - Amherst
  • $169.95 For Virologists, Biochemists, Pharmaceutical Chemists and other investigators.
  • $179.95 I’ll say it again, you don’t get to be a 4 th edition… For over 20 years this manual has remained the definitive source of the latest information and procedures for the physician and clinical lab virologist! Divided into two sections, this volume presents essential information for Clinicians and Lab Virologists alike. Specter @ USF, Hodinka @ Penn, Young @ UNM and Wiedbrauk @ Warde Med Lab (?)
