Advanced Food Analysis Tools: Biosensors and Nanotechnology provides the latest information on innovative biosensors and tools that are used to perform on-site detection tests. Food safety is a global health goal, with the food industry providing testing and guidance to keep the population safe. Food contamination is mainly caused by harmful substances and biological organisms, including bacteria, viruses and parasites, which can all have a major impact on human health. The lack of specific, low-cost, rapid, sensitive and easy detection of harmful compounds has resulted in the development of the electrochemical technologies that are presented in this book.
Building the Future of Food Safety Technology: Blockchain and Beyond focuses on evaluating, developing, testing and predicting Blockchain's impact on the food industry, the types of regulatory compliance needed, and other topics important pertaining to consumers. Blockchain is a technology that can be used to record transactions from multiple entities across a complex network. A record on a blockchain cannot be altered retroactively without the alteration of all preceding blocks and the consensus of the network. Blockchain is often associated with cryptocurrency, but it is being looked at more and more as a solution to food-supply problems.
This six volume set presents important research on virology. Some of the topics addressed include: *the fundamentals of Zika virus *preparation for pandemic diseases *West Nile virus *the management of the spread of Ebola virus disease *human papillomaviruses *viral hemorrhagic fevers *the treatment of avian influenza virus *bronchiolitis
Outbreak: Cases in Real-World Microbiology, 2nd Edition, is the newest edition of this fascinating textbook designed for introductory microbiology students and instructors. Thoroughly revised, this collection of case studies of real-world disease outbreaks, generously illustrated in full color, offers material that directly impacts college-level students, while the book's unique presentation offers instructors the flexibility to use it effectively in a number of ways. More than 90 outbreak case studies, organized into six sections according to the human body system affected, illustrate the wide range of diseases caused by microbial pathogens. The studies are presented at differing levels of difficulty and can be taught at all undergraduate levels. Each case study includes questions for students to think about, discuss, and answer, and the book includes an appendix that directs students to the specific reference material on which each case was based, providing the opportunity to investigate further and to apply the reference content to the case being studied. Each of the six sections of the book concludes with a College Perspective and a Global Perspective case study. The College Perspective provides a direct and practical link between the microbiology course and the daily lives of students. The Global Perspective connects students with outbreaks that have occurred in countries around the world to facilitate understanding of the social, religious, economic, and political values at play in the treatment and prevention of infectious disease. At the end of every section, detailed descriptions offer concise yet complete information on each disease involved in that section.
This edition explains various concepts using simple language and short sentences. Each topic covered in one small chapter makes it easy for the student to read. The aims and objectives of this book are primarily to meet the requirements of DMLT and undergraduate courses.Written in easy-to-grasp simple language. Addition of many new and important chapters, such as bacterial typing, various serological techniques, molecular level of diagnosis, etc. Includes a complete section on virology to study clinically important viruses, such as chikungunya, oncogenic viruses, herpes viruses, etc. The chapter on Automation in Microbiology has been added to familiarize the readers with advanced technology in the field of clinical microbiology. Enriched with illustrative images and colour plates. An essential core text for DMLT, MLT and BSc students.
After the Human Genome Project was concluded, it was discovered that our genome is much smaller than expected (overall human genome is ~3.08?Gb), which led scientists to think that this has to do with the symbiotic relationships between Humans and the microorganisms inhabiting in the different human organs and tissues (which would lead to a 10 fold increase in the Human genome size). These observations started the beginning of the Human Microbiota studies, the study of bacteria, viruses, parasites and fungi that inhabit in the human body. Development of new generation sequencing techniques, lead to the study of the Human Microbiome, study of the genome of the microorganisms that live in the human body. The term Microbiota was first defined by Lederberg and McCray, as an ecological community of commensal, symbiotic and pathogenic microorganisms found in and on all multicellular organisms studied to date from plants to animals. A microbiota includes bacteria, archaea, protists, fungi and viruses. Microbiota have been found to be crucial for immunologic, hormonal and metabolic homeostasis of their host. The term Microbiome refers to the entire habitat, including the microorganisms (bacteria, archaea, lower and higher eukaryotes and viruses), their genomes (i.e., genes), and the surrounding environmental conditions. This book starts with an introduction and description of the Human Microbiome Project, an ongoing effort to understand the Human Microbiome. The next sections look into the microbiota and microbiome of specific body fluids (saliva, Section 1), and tissues (oral and nasopharyngeal sites, lungs, skin, gastrointestinal tract, vagina and others, Sections 2 to 8). Sections 9 and 10 are dedicated to in vitro and in vivo models for the study of the Human Microbiota and Microbiome. Section 11 is dedicated to the study of the metabolome.
Written in simple, brief and easy lucid language, this book incorporates recent advances in medical microbiology. It is enriched with colour images, flowcharts, tables, etc, which have been added to enhance the understanding of the text. A few new chapters, such as zoonosis, quality control, and parasitology (protozoa and helminths) are also included.
