Summary "Microbiology covers the scope and sequence requirements for a single-semester microbiology course for non-majors. The book presents the core concepts of microbiology with a focus on applications for careers in allied health. The pedagogical features of the text make the material interesting and accessible while maintaining the career-application focus and scientific rigor inherent in the subject matter. Microbiologys art program enhances students understanding of concepts through clear and effective illustrations, diagrams, and photographs."--Open Textbook Library.
