The Bacteriocins review

Excerpt from a book review of The Bacteriocins: Current Knowledge and Future Prospects
"This excellent book summarises the current state of play as regards our understanding of a wide range of bacteriocin biology ... explores current efforts to develop bacteriocins as alternatives to traditional small molecule antibiotics ... neatly summarises our current understanding of the molecular basis of bacteriocin selectivity and potency at the molecular level, our understanding of bacteriocin ecology and evolution, and how this information is currently being used to develop bacteriocins as useful therapeutics. This book will therefore be of interest to anyone interested in the future development of antibiotics." from Microbiology Today read more ...
