The 10th edition of Microbiology: An Introduction gives students access to the fundamentals of microbiology while touching on some advanced concepts, thereby catering to a wide spectrum of readers in various levels of learning. Tortora, Funke, and Case maintain the book's authority while providing practical applications and examples. It is broken down into 5 key parts, covering some of the most important subjects in microbiology, including pathogenicity, epidemiology, microbial diseases, immunity (innate and adaptive), and many others. It is highly specialized to address the needs of students with different skill levels, as well as microbiologists, instructors, and professionals looking for a quick and comprehensive reference. Microbiology: An Introduction is also a must read for those who want to develop a strong background and foundation in various respects such as virology, bacteriology, immunology, mycology, parasitology, and other branches of microbiology. The book even includes a good range of learning tools to help students absorb the material more effectively. It is highly visual and offers self-assessment tools strategically after key sections. Some of its helpful features include ‘Check Your Understanding' and ‘Focus' boxes, which offers information on the most common diseases. ‘Study Outlines' along with ‘Draw It' questions help readers summarize and remember what they learned from each chapter. Microbiology: An Introduction, Books a la Carte Edition (10th Edition) ISBN 9780321582034 is an unbound version of the book; it comes with the Coursecompass code rather than the newer MasteringMicrobiology. Tortora, Funke, and Chase also made significant revisions to the text, offering more comprehensive and up to date chapters on immunity, biofilms, antimicrobial resistance, and bioterrorism.
