Joan L. Slonczewski received her BA from Bryn Mawr College and her PhD in molecular biophysics and biochemistry from Yale University, where she studied bacterial motility with Robert M. Macnab. Since completing postdoctoral work at the University of Pennsylvania, she has since taught undergraduate microbiology in the Department of Biology at Kenyon College, where she earned a Silver Medal in the National Professor of the Year program of the Council for the Advancement and Support of Education. She has published numerous research articles with undergraduate coauthors on bacterial pH regulation as well as five science fiction novels, including The Highest Frontier and A Door into Ocean, both of which earned the John W. Campbell Memorial Award. She conducted fieldwork on microbial ecosystems in Antarctica, sponsored by the National Science Foundation. She has served as At-Large Member representing Divisions on the Council Policy Committee of the American Society for Microbiology and as a member of the editorial board of the journal Applied and Environmental Microbiology.

John W.

Moat. After postdoctoral work at Georgetown University, he joined the Marshall University School of Medicine in West Virginia. He is currently teaching in the Department of Microbiology and Immunology at the University of South Alabama College of Medicine in Mobile, Alabama. Dr. Foster has coauthored three editions of the textbook Microbial Physiology and has published more than 100 journal articles describing the physiology and genetics of microbial stress responses.

Das Buch an sich ist inhaltlich gut und sehr detailliert. Allerdings kam es schon mit verknickten Ecken an allen Ecken an.

3.0 out of 5 stars Book is Falling Apart
Reviewed in the United States on 13 September 2019
Renting my class books are much cheaper than buying! With this being said, the book I got is pretty terrible! It is falling apart. The back cover is completely disconnected from the book making it very hard to cary to campus because it is literally in pieces.

3.0 out of 5 stars Poor condition
Reviewed in the United States on 18 November 2020
The cover is in very poor condition which makes it difficult to use since the book is so large and heavy. Besides that the book is a great text and easy to read!
