Horizontal Gene Transfer in the Evolution of Pathogenesis by Michael Hensel
Book DescriptionHorizontal gene transfer is a major driving force in the evolution of many bacterial pathogens. The development of high-throughput sequencing tools and more sophisticated genomic and proteomic techniques in recent years has resulted in a better understanding of this phenomenon. Written by leading experts in the field, this edited volume is aimed at graduate students and researchers and provides an overview of current knowledge relating to the evolution of microbial pathogenicity. This volume provides an overview of the mechanisms and biological consequences of the genome rearrangements resulting from horizontal gene transfer, in both prokaryotes and eukaryotes, as well as overviews of the key mobile genetic elements involved. Subsequent chapters focus on paradigms for the evolution of important bacterial pathogens, including Salmonella enterica, Streptococcus pneumoniae, and Staphylococcus aureus. The influence of socioeconomic parameters in the dissemination of transferable elements, such as antibiotic resistant genes in bacteria, is also discussed.

Constructions, Paperback (March 2015)
The current trend for constructing experimental structures is now an international phenomenon. It has been taken up worldwide by design professionals, researchers, educators and students alike. There exist, however, distinct and significant tendencies within this development that require further investigation.
Iran, Paperback (April 2012)
Over the last few decades, Iranian architects have made a significant contribution to architectural design. This has, however, remained largely unrecognised internationally. This publication highlights the future potential from an environmental design point of view of Iran's rich heritage of vernacular architecture.
Turkey, Paperback (January 2010)» View all books by Michael Hensel
Since the early 2000s, Turkey has undergone a remarkable economic recovery, accompanied by urban development and a cultural flowering. Positioned between an expanding EU and an unstable Middle East, Turkey provides a fascinating interface between the East and West.
