This lab manual includes 57 experiments that demonstrate basic microbiological techniques and applications.
Features and Benefits
NEW! Exercise 44 in the Fifth Edition, "Fluorescent Antibody Technique," is replaced by a completely new lab exercise, "ELISA Technique." After completing this exercise, students will be able to do the following- explain how ELISA tests can be used clinically to detect antibodies or antigens, differentiate between direct and indirect ELISA antibody tests, and determine the titer of antibodies by the ELISA method.
NEW! Exercise 27, "Regulation of Gene Expression," is a new lab that has been added to Part 7, Microbial Genetics. Experiments include two operons and students use green fluorescent protein to determine expression.
NEW! Additional problems and activities using the Bacteria ID CD-ROM are now included in Exercises 46-50 (Part 12).
NEW! Experiments have been refined to encourage students to develop critical thinking skills as well as to learn basic facts and technical skills.
NEW! Updated Instructors Guide written by the authors includes general instructions for setting up the lab, safety guidelines for handling blood and other body fluids.
Background, procedures, and lab report sections emphasize critical thinking skills with questions requiring students to recall and apply information through analysis and reason.
Each exercise includes objectives; background definitions and explanations; lists of materials, supplies, and cultures needed; techniques required, with cross-references to previous exercises; step-by-step instructions; and space to record results.
Twelve pages of photographs in full color, numerous diagrams, and drawings assist the student in visualizing microbes.
