Textbook Summary

Remember the part of high school biology where you looked at slides with a microscope, and you learned that mitochondria is the powerhouse of the cell? Turns out there’s an entire microscopic world beyond what we can see, and Microbiology: An Introduction 13th Edition is the solution to exploring that world. But despite its name, microbiology isn’t just about the biology—the text explores the full breadth of the field, including chemical principles, microbial metabolism, microbial genetics, and the principles of epidemiology.

And with the addition of MasteringMicrobiology, you’ll have access to even more learning resources available to you online. Between video tutorials and dynamic study modules, you’ll be ready to learn all about the microscopic world.
