Bibliography Note Includes bibliographical references and index.
Summary Many bacteria survive infection of their host in a low growth state, including the classic persistent infectious bacteria, tuberculosis. This book will be of interest to microbiologists, medical microbiologists and infectious disease clinicians who are interested in learning more about the fundamental science of bacterial dormancy in relation to disease.
